Hello! Our family is new to backyard chickens and recently purchased our first 6 here in Tucson.
Welcome, fellow desert dweller. Drop in on this thread as well if you'd like. I linked the end (it's over 6k pages)
What kind of birds did you get?

Official BYC Coop Page Contest - Fall-Winter 2017
The 9th Annual BYC Easter Hatchalong!
Awesome contests going on here: Hatch-A-Longs
We have a mixture of Rhode Island reds, amerucaunnas and silkies. Unfortunately they misjudged one and it is a rooster! Our neighborhood is not pleased. Do you happen to know anyone I can donate a beautiful all white silkie rooster to? About 4 months old...
I'm up in Mesa, so not very useful to you. You might comment in the Az thread, or there's some az backyard chicken groups and AZ rooster swap on FB that might be able to help.
Hi there! Welcome to the site..
Howdy Happy to have you join the family. Enjoy your time here at BYC!
Glad you're here !
A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.
Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!
One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)
Great to have you!! Nice mixture of breeds! If you have any questions, BYC is here!
G'Day from down under Jnners Welcome and Congratulations!
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.
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.
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
Including your general location on your profile 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.
