    Just kidding. It's going to snow again tonight/tomorrow. Have been lurking a while, but decided to join to get some needed specific advice for all you experts.
    Currently with 11 hens and two roosters (one rooster was supposed to be an Easter egged hen!), 10 chicks in the brooder, 5 goose eggs in the incubator, and turkeys eggs being lined up next... Didn't know I was such a poultry until I got those first chickens.

    Chickens are considered the gateway to ducks, geese, guineas, quail, goats, sheep, cattle [​IMG]. Chicken addictions are very real, and we will never say you have too many.

    G’Day from down under hngchicks [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some links to great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
