    Hi I'm new here and I'm really happy about it. I absolutely love chickens. No eggs yet. My girls are still pretty young. I live in Tennessee.

    I have four. About five months old. Plus two babies I think one is a rooster. (I hope) you? I've never had chickens before. They make me so happy. They are so entertaining!!

    Hey there @forest gardener and [​IMG]
    I see you have already been welcomed by some of our amazing members, but I thought I would take some time and welcome you myself. It is great to hear that you joined BYC and at a great time as well. It seems like you are pretty new to the chicken business which is mighty fine by us! BYC is a wonderful place for all poultry lovers from the chicken obsessed to the duck lovers. It really is amazing how we have gotten so many amazing people all in one place with a common interest.
    I urge you to get more comfortable with our forums. This includes wandering around and browsing our many selection of topics and ideas, asking and answering questions, and most importantly HAVE FUN!!!
    I will leave a couple links on chickens just so it will be easier when the time comes to get some help
