    I'm Jen....I am new to this group and fairly new to chickens, turkeys, and ducks. I volunteer to help rescue them especially around Easter time. We don't mind eating them or whatever, but treat em humanely. I currently habe 2 baby turkeys, 20 chicks (silkies, turkens, and bantams). 3 ducklings, 1 pigeon, 6 cats, 12 rabbits, 3 dogs, 2 horses, 1 ferret, 5 rats, 2 snakes, 1 bearded dragon, 3 fish, 4 human kids, and my husband lol

    Nice to meet you Jen, thank you for rescuing these animals. We live in a disposable society that dumps things (animals, human babies etc.) like they are soiled tissues. Very sad.

    Hi Jen and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread#post_3239224

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

    As you have already received links to some good starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    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, 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]
