    Hi everyone! I got my first chicks a week ago today. I had done a good bit of research prior and took the leap into keeping chickens! So far so good ;)
    I've got four chicks. Two black austrolorps and two barred rocks, all hens. My husband and I are in the process of setting up their coop/run/fence. So exciting!
    I joined BYC to get more helpful info along the way and make some likeminded chicken-lovin friends!

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

    As you have already received some links to some good starting points, I will just wish you and your little ones 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]
