(1) We are brand new to having chickens. We got ours September 14 and they were said to be a week old at that time.

(2) How many chickens do you have right now? 4

(3) What breeds do you have? 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes and 2 Buff Orpingtons.

(4) How did you find out about Google

(5) What are some of your other hobbies? Reading, playing with our kids, boating, attending concerts, walking

(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. We have 2 kids, a boy and a girl (ages 4 and 6) and a dog and cat (ages 8 and 2). I work at a local University.

(7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D I'm loving the forums.

Hi and welcome to BYC

On this link you'll find lots of information on almost every aspect of keeping birds - from coop building ideas, to incubating eggs -

There’s a link on the page above to the Learning Centre - it’s a great resource. If you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

Each week, various topics are discussed, which can also be a great resource -

This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 (there's a guide on how to include your location under your avatar - including your location is very helpful). You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.
