    Welcome Tania!! The only advice I have s to KEEP READING!! There is a wealth of knowledge to be found here. I didn't know anything about chickens when I joined. Now I have 31!!! and 40 eggs ready for the incubator!!!! The people here are very helpful, so ask lots of questions. Congrats on the battery hens!!!
