    Hello,

    I'm a week into my first flock of chicks. I've been "lurking" around reading lots of good info here over the last few weeks and found some great info! Y'all are a great bunch of people!

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

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you and your flock 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]

    Hi N F C, Thank you. That's a question I have myself. I started a thread to ask about some of the chicks I received (ornamental layers from McMurray). All the helpful people here are helping me figure it out. :)
