    Hey, my wife and I have just started our chicken obsession and have 2 RIR, a Wyandotte and what we think may be five "Easter eggers". We can't wait to dig in and start working on making a healthy, happy environment for our egg layers!!! I look forward to learning all I can from you chicken folk!

    If you haven't already, check out the Learning Center. There are a lot of articles there that will help you get off to a good start. And if you'd like to 'meet' other members in your state, you can find your state thread using the link in my signature (at the bottom of this post).

    Good luck with your new flock!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Congratulations to you and your wife on getting your chicken adventures started :clap If you are unsure of breed our what breed gender section would be a great place for you to pop by ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

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

    As you have already received some 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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
