    I'm not very good at starting a thead so I just copied and posted these questions they gave me to give me an idea what to say to introduce myself.

    So here it goes.....

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Yes I am very new to having chicken although my fiance has had some experience with raising egg laying chickens.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We curgently have 3 chickens but we are going to get 3 more hopefully tomorrow.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    We have a Leghorn, a Barred Rock, and a Golden Comet.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    I searched for information about raising our baby chicks and this website was the only one that has great advice and answers on raising them the right way.

    (5) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I am a CNA my fiance is a professional painter. We have 2 boys ages 2 and 7. We have 2 inside cats and 1 dog.

    Hello and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. I'd advise reading up on integrating new flock members if your fiancé hasn't done that before - just use the search function.

    G’Day from down under Raytaub :frow 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.

    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.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. These two may be of particular interest to you:
    Topic of the Week - Integrating Chicks into an Adult Flock
    Topic of the Week - Adding New Chickens to the Flock

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock or other critters, 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 ;)
