    My name is Karen and I have had 5 chickens about 9 months and they are layers, I get one egg a day from them. I just bought 50 chicks and 4 ducks and have had them 2 weeks going on three. I have lost 2 chicks.think it was stress. So I just wanted to join for help,info and just people who know chickens and possibly ducks. We also have 2 dogs,4 cats,2 rabbits,a horse,donkey and 5 sheep and 3 lambs. This is my micro farm. I live in Texas and the weather here is (as my daughter says )bipolar. Lol. Thanks for allowing me to join.

    :welcome:celebrate

    Glad you're here !

    A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
    It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

    Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

    One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)
