    I just started my first backyard flock a few weeks ago and am already in love and obsessed. I have learned so much and look forward to learning much more. Thanks for adding me.

    Hi Robin and welcome to BYC. I agree, keeping chickens is very addictive - you'll want more before too long - I promise!

    The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Joining your state thread may be useful as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - just type the name of your state in the search box.

    All the best
