    Hello all!
    Just an introduction of myself. I live in Florida with my son and husband and we recently have acquired 9 chicks. We have never had chickens before but have always wanted to. So excited to start this fun adventure. It's definitely a learning process but loving it so far :)

    I am still trying to figure that out! We got them from Ace on chick day. The employee couldn't give us a definite answer as to what they were

    Hello, and welcome to BYC -- so very glad you've joined us. Chicken keeping can be such a wonderful family project, I am sure that you, your son and your husband will enjoy your new flock. You've come to the right place here to start learning everything you ever wanted to know (and some things you never knew you wanted to know, lol) about the poultry keeping adventure - we'll gladly "talk chicken" with you all day long!

    G’Day from down under amarshall929 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    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.

    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 [​IMG]
