    We are new to this chicken and goats. We started a little over a year ago with chickens had a rough start just getting things right, we seem to be doing better. We haven't lost any birds and we are getting eggs! We hope to add to our four hens and one rooster soon. We started with goats in Sept and thought we were doing good, we are struggling a little with weight gain, but hope to get that going better soon too. So much info out there its a little overwhelming sometimes. We are hoping to find some guidance. Thank you for having us.

    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.

    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.
