    Hello all!
    I am new here, and here is some background:

    I am not "new" to chickens really, but this is the first time that I am raising them as pets/layers. I grew up in 4-H showing chickens. My mother has laying hens and I always love to watch them. They are hilarious! So of course I needed my own.

    I just got 8 babies last Saturday. I have 3 Orpingtons, 3 Cochins, and 2 Black Star Sex Links. I have names picked out, but I won't be assigning them until I can tell the babies apart. :)
    We mainly got the chickens to have as a family time project, but I am way too excited about them. Haha.
    Right now they are living in the house in a big plastic tub. The weather here has been way too unpredictable for me to feel comfortable with keeping them outside.


    I really wanted to join BYC to see how everyone else raises their chickens, and maybe to get some tips and tricks! I can't wait to meet all of you!

    G'Day from down under Chickencal :frow Or should I say Monster Chickencal ;) Welcome and Congratulations! :clap

    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.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    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 ;)

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.
