    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    My #1 tip would be read everything. There's no such thing as too much knowledge (provided it's good information from reliable sources!). The Learning Center here on BYC is a great place to start.

    Just have fun checking out BYC! Start with your state thread. Have any questions about breeds? Type into the search bar the type of breed you are interested in learning about.
    Hatching for the first time..there's a lot going on with that! Again, type in the search bar.
