    Hello!

    Not only am I new here but I am a first time chicken owner! We got 6 chicks a little over two months ago and it is going good so far. I have turned into the crazy chicken lady! I love it. I love my hens.

    Hi Lindsay; I also have my first flock, about 5 weeks old. BYC is proving to be a great resource for me, the members are very generous with their time and advice. Glad you are here, we will learn so much this year.
