Hi my name is Lisa. I'm new at all of this first time chick owner. We currently bought 2 sw 2 Australorps(I think), and 2 barred rocks. So any and all pointers to these breeds would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to BYC!

Congrats on your new babies! Very cute! You will love all of these breeds. Very friendly and docile birds, and great layers as well.

If you need any tips and hints on raising your new brood, stop by our learning center here on BYC for lots of good reads on all the aspects of keeping poultry...

Also, don't be afraid to handle them either. This will help tame them up. Carry them around the house, get them on the living room floor, just work with them. By the time they head out to the coop, they will be so bonded with you, you will have them sitting on your lap. Literally. My Aussies are huge on lap sitting. They just devour the attention.

Enjoy your new babies and welcome to our flock!
