    Seeing as I am typing up a post(thread?) in New Member Introductions, i'm going to tell you a bit about myself.
    -I do not currently have chickens (but I am getting some Monday- more on that later) but Me and my parents have raised chickens (mainly RIR's) through the years, so we know a few things.
    -Monday I will be going to pick up 3 Buff Wyandotte chicks which have been sexed and are female.I am hoping to start a thread on those later tonight as I adjust to the comminity, and take some tips on setting up for them. This will be the first time raising chicks with 100% my own care. (I will be showing them in 4H)
    -Previously in my life I have owned a pony, several horses, donkeys, around 100 chickens (over time, shared with my parents) cats, fish, guinea hens (shared with my parents), and many many more.
    If anyone has questions about me feel free to ask. And keep an eye out for my future thread on the Wyandotte chicks- i'm sure i'll have plenty of questions, and I will keep everyone updated on how they are doing.
    I'm very excited to meet new people, learn new things, and become apart of the BYC family!

    Welcome to BYC, Hailey. Glad you decided to our flock. In my personal opinion, Wyandottes are preferable to RIRs. They may not lay quite as heavy as they RIRs, but they are usually friendlier and more gentle than RIRs (of course there are always exceptions). Also, their rose combs are not subject to frost bite like the single combs of the RIRs. I think you will be happy with your Wyandottes. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your Wyandottes.

    Hi :welcome Hailey

    Glad you could join the flock! Wishing you the very best of luck with your new wyandotte chicks on Monday. I love raising chicks its a fantastic experience and very rewarding as you watch them grow and develop their own personalities. Here is a nice section of the learning centre on raising chicks https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks

    Enjoy BYC :frow
