    Hello all,

    I'm Jennifer, I've been reading BYC for quite some time. My husband and I recently bought our home east of Cleveland TX and today is the big day for us. Keith (my husband) is on his way home with our 6 chicks. We are getting Black Sex Linked girls, mostly because that's what the feed store had available :D.

    I really enjoy reading BYC and appreciate the wealth of information available here.

    I will try not to be too much of a pest ;D

    Any advice for a chicken newbie is appreciated!

    ~Jen

    Welcome to BYC, Jennifer! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our community.

    You'll really enjoy the Black Sex-Links! They have a well-deserved reputation for excellent egg production and good temperaments.

    You may want to check out their breed reviews:Black Sex Link chicken Also, take a look at the Learning Center, particularly the articles on raising baby chicks: Learning Center Articles

    Good luck with your new Black Sex-link chicks! They should grow into beautiful egg layers.

    Thanks for the warm welcome! Already loving our little girls. They are so hilarious, last night a mosquito hawk got into their brooder and when it would fly close to them they would peep in panic and run away! We stayed up way too late just watching them [​IMG]
