New Chicken Momma from RVA


Mar 3, 2018
Richmond, VA
Hi y'all! I just ordered my first flock from a local farm. We are expecting 2 Easter Eggers, 2 Black Jersey Giants, and 2 Speckled Sussex. I have been researching this venture for about 2yrs and I still have a bit of trepidation about "am I doing everything right?" Haha! Not starting off fancy, I just want to be a good caregiver. Thanks for welcoming me to the group.

G’Day from down under Chelle’sChics :frow Welcome!

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.

I note you mention you are in Virginia [this Aussie is guessing that is what RVA stands for :p] but if you include your general location on your profile, this 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 Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. I see you have been researching for a while but these two might be of particular interest to you:
Topic of the Week - Getting Started, Keeping Chickens
Topic of the Week - Keeping the Flock Safe from Predators

If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock when they arrive, 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 ;)

Best wishes and good luck!
