    When I joined Backyard Chickens, I was trying to learn all I could about the guinea fowl we hope to have when we move to a different home with more land. Then we lost our minds and ordered a bunch of baby chicks because we were tired of waiting for our country life to begin! We currently have 6 speckled Sussex, they are about a week old now, and they are the cutest things on earth! We have a friend who is willing to make a trade on two for others that we would also really enjoy, but I don't think I can pick, we love them all! Really enjoying the community and answers to questions!

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us and I wish you the best of luck with your new flock.

    The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Joining your state thread will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area, which can be helpful (just type the name of your state in the search box).

    All the best
