    My husband and i have 30 chickens 28 hens and 2 roosters .and they are our first chickens. We have had them for about 8 months give or take.and I can't get enough of them .we just had to give one of our hens a shot of antibiotics for the first time she has a respiratory infection.but she did great so fingers crossed that she gets better soon.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great that you have joined us. It's good to hear that your sick girl has responded to treatment - respiratory sicknesses can be a devil.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you


    All the best

    G’Day from down under Sweetheart5 [​IMG] Welcome!

    I have my fingers crossed that your girl recovers quickly [​IMG]

    I hope you enjoy BYC. 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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
