    Hi. I'm new to chickens. Just got a trio of Rhode Island Red Bantams yesterday, from a guy looking to get rid of them, one rooster and two hens 3 years old.

    This was after I'd bought 6 chicks from a friend, that are now 3 weeks old. So not only am I raising chicks for the first time, but I have to introduce the two flocks to one another once chicks are old enough to be outside at night. Talk about being overwhelmed!

    I'm am reading everything I can think to read, as questions pop into my head. Lol

    Wish me luck!

    G’Day from down under kristina0306 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Beautiful, healthy looking birds!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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. 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]
