    Hi! I'm a first time chicken mama. I've been a veterinary technician for 9 years but we don't see many chickens so I'm kind of learning as I go! We've got 3 dogs, 3 cats and now 6 chicks- Bernadette, Scarlett, Lizzie, Nugget, Mar Far and Lego my Eggo( did I mention I have. Four year old? :). And also an 8 month old.). Any tips are welcome. We are hoping to have them well socialized as they will be primarily pets with the bonus of eggs :)

    Welcome to BYC. Apply the same common sense husbandry criteria to your birds that you would to any animal, and your flock will thrive.
