Hi, I'm Heather, I am new to chickens, I will be getting six chicks in one month, very excited!!! I am getting two Buff Orpintons, two Barred rocks and Two Ameraucanas. I found Backyard chickens from my friend at work who has a farm. My husband and kids are also happy to be getting chickens. We have two dogs and two cats. I am a veterinary technician and love animals.

Welcome to BYC!

And congrats on the soon to be new chicks! Yes, the waiting can nearly kill you. The chicks just can't arrive soon enough!

While you are waiting, you might stop by our learning center here on BYC for lots of great articles on all the aspects of keeping poultry....

And being a vet tech will come in handy! Should your birds need some medical help, you will be the perfect doctor and mommy. :)

Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock!

Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Sounds like you will have a nice little flock and colorful egg basket! Hope the wait will be over before you know it! X2 the Learning Center is a great place to check out while you are waiting for the chicks.

Welcome, it would be great if you decided to became a veterinarian or experienced chicken tech.

So few vets that treat chickens
