    Hi people. I'm new to this site and a soon-to-be chick co-owner/caretaker. Any tips?

    Welcome to BYC and the poultry keeping adventure.
    This site is chock full of wonderful threads, articles and member with tons of knowledge and experience you can learn from. The Learning Center https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center is a great place to start. If you haven't already built your coop, you may want to take some time to browse the coops section https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/2/Coops to start getting some ideas for your construction.
    Look forward to seeing you around the forums.

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

    As you have already received some links to some good starting points, I will just wish you and your little ones all the best.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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]
