    I am a first-time mommy to 6 baby chicks. I am so excited that we already put their coop together! We live in SW Fl and I am happy to find a place for questions and advice.

    Welcome to BYC - so glad you've joined us. Nothing more exciting than the day you bring home your first babies - unless it's the next day or the next spent watching them grow and change. You've come to the right place, we'll talk chicken with you all day long!

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

    Aaaaw, such cute little ones!

    As you have already received links to some good starting points, I will just wish you and them 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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
