    I am brand spanking new! I have not even picked up my chickens yet.

    I'm trying to get everything ready and I would love any advice on what I need before they come home.

    Thank you in advance!

    G’Day from down under OnnieMae [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock when they arrive, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    Hi and thank you for the warm welcome!

    I adopted six ISA Browns and and six Brown Leghorns. I really want to add more to my flock. I am looking into Ameraucanas, Australorps and others. I want strong egg producers but I also want a colorful and friendly flock.

    Any suggestions?

    I have attached a few photos of my babies below:
