    I just got seven hens and one rooster. Built a nice coop/ lot. New to this any advice.

    Hi, welcome to the chicken world. They definitely are wonderful creatures with some spunky personalities :) What kind of chickens do you have? Since you just got them, make sure you give them a few day's to get adjusted, most don't immediately lay, they take time to warm up to new surroundings. Will they be free range or pinned?

    The members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
