    Hi we are newbie parents to 13 3 week old barred rock chicks. Our 11 year old son decided he wanted to join 4H this year. So now we have baby chicks. Hopefully we will find alot of useful info from here.

    G’Day from down under blondie-red [​IMG] Welcome!

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