    Try not to stress; there are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here on BYC so ask as many questions as you like.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    BYC has a Learning Centre and also Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. I have picked out the below as possibly being of interest to you at this stage:
    Topic/Question of the week - Brooding and supplementing heat for chicks
    Topic of the Week - Raising Chicks
    Topic of the Week - Getting Started, Keeping Chickens
    Topic of the Week - Keeping the Flock Safe from Predators
    Topic of the Week - Dogs and chickens

    If you would like to share more Pictures and Stories of your flock or other critters, 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 ;)
