    Hi my name is Beverly, I am new to raising my own chickens. I have helped take care of my mother in laws but decided it was time to get some of my own. I took my kids with me and we have picked out 8 Chicks. We have 1 black austorlorp, 2 Golden comets, 1 bantam and 4 straight run chicks. We picked them up on St. patricks day and so far everyone is doing well.

    Hi Beverley and welcome to BYC

    Here’s a good link where you’ll find lots of information on almost every aspect of keeping chickens - from coop building ideas, to incubating eggs - https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/


    There’s a link on the page above to the Learning Centre - it’s a great resource. 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.


    Each week, various topics are discussed, which can also be a great resource - https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/topic-of-the-week-thread-archive


    You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find Your State Thread

    Best wishes

    Pork Pie

    G'Day from down under Beverly :frow Welcome and Congratulations! :clap

    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.

    Please do check out the Topic of the Week discussions Pork Pie mentioned. I have found these to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining.

    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 ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.
