Hi y’all!

Just joined the other day. Very excited to find an online community of other fowl lovers. :D

I’m brand new to owning chickens. I have a chick flock of seven. There are four bantams (I think Old English breed), two Amberlinks, and one Barred Rock. Three are sexed as pullets and rest will be a surprise. Lol

Thanks for having such a great and informative community! I look forward to sharing a lot.

Oh sweetie... no no no.. we are not a group of fowl lovers... we are Crazy Chicken People..... We will beg for pics of your flock, we will show you pics of our flock, we will talk you into getting MORE chickens... and talk you into hatching your own from eggs... we are complete and total chicken enablers... so run!!! :gig

IN the meantime:

: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/)

Thank you, all for the warm welcome!

I went to take a picture this morning of the flock. My Barred Rock was sitting on top of the feeder. That was new! Lol
