    G’Day from down under mandaba13 [​IMG] Welcome & Congratulations!

    I recommend a visit to the Learning Centre; lots of good tips there:

    If you have any questions regarding your chicks, this is a link to the Raising Baby Chicks Forum:

    And, as you have Silkies, you might be interested in the Silkie Thread:

    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.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, 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 [​IMG]
