    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] Have a look at the Learning Center here for an introduction to all things chicken, the Frequently Asked Questions section, when you scroll past the site related questions has some links to frequently asked chicken related questions and if you move around the forum in each section you will see blue "sticky threads" on top in each section. Those are some of the best and most informative threads on each topic, such as incubating eggs, dealing with wounds and emergencies etc. If you have any questions you are welcome to ask, we're here to help! Enjoy the site [​IMG]

    Hi and :welcome

    Good on you for choosing BYC eggs. :p
    Chickens need food, water and shelter (predator proof - that's important) but that's about it. Mostly just go with the flow and tackle things as they come up!
    I hope you find all the info you need here, and enjoy the site. :D
