We just got one week old chicks 8 all different breeds. Very excited to start this journey!
Hello and welcome!
I am vaguely jealous as I cast my mind back to 16 weeks ago when I too was a "new chicken mama". The first six weeks of raising them was very special ... Though every week I have fallen more in love with my girls. Chickens are AMAZING suffice to say, but it was also a learning curve and I got so much help from this website, so I hope you do too.
It's nice you got all different breeds... Have fun watching them grow... It's astonishingly fast!!! And if you spend lots of time with them, they will adore you just as much!

Congratulations new chicken mama - Welcome to Backyard chickens
Hi there and welcome to the chicken club! I am so glad you joined BYC, please make yourself at home and enjoy yourself here!
G’Day from down under jburroughs Welcome!
Congratulations! I am also jealous, I looked back and the last babies we had here were just under 2 years ago; getting chick withdrawal symptoms!
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
I always preferred a mixed flock myself...it's fun to see the differences in behavior, feathering, etc.
Have fun with your new little ones!
Glad you joined us! Good luck!
