    I've been reading over the forums on this page the past few days and decided to join. There seems to be so much helpful information shared here! I've raised egg layers in the past but never fully on my own! I'm expecting my first shipment of chicks (couldn't find any locally on my small island) tomorrow. They actually should have arrived today so I'm crossing my fingers and hoping they'll all be ok. They are my first real little ones I'm raising 100% on my own. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Greetings from Kansas and :welcome! Great to have you with us! The best advice I can give is to spend some time in the Learning Center here https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    The Baby Chicks information will be most useful now but the other sections will become helpful as you need them as your birds grow. Best wishes and good luck with your flock! :)

    Oh I do hope your babies arrive safely soon! It sure is difficult to wait!!

    But you have come to the right place for all the fun and learning. Definitely follow the link that redsoxs has left for you to the learning center. Lots of helpful articles on raising your new little ones.

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock! :)

    Thanks everyone! I have been researching like crazy before I even ordered my chicks. A lot of good info I actually found right here. im crossing my fingers too and hoping my babies arrive early tomorrow morning, luckily I live in a small town and my post master knows I'm anxiously awaiting there arrival!

    @drumstick diva. It is a beautiful place! I dont think I could ever live anywhere else!
