    Hi everyone,

    I've been reading the forums for a few weeks and finally decided to start participating as more than a looky loo. We just started our first flock (2 Rhode Island red, 3 easter egger, and 2 silkie chicks) for our 7 yr old 4-H'er. She's thrilled. I previously raised chickens in high school so its not my first rodeo, but man am I rusty on a lot. Hoping to learn as much as possible from here.

    Welcome to the flock. The Learning Center is a great refresher course.

    Hi :welcome
    Glad you could join the flock! Lovely to hear you have got back into chicken keeping and that your daughter is thrilled! They are great for getting children outdoors and to learn how to care for them. Definatly drop by the learning centre as drumstick diva said so many great articles on all aspects of keeping chickens https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Wishing you the best of luck and hope you enjoy BYC :frow

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined us.

    It sounds like you'll have a lovely flock when they grow up! I'm especially a fan of Easter Eggers. My Easter Egger has been quite docile and a very good layer of nice green eggs.

    Please feel free to ask any questions you may have! We're all here to help in any way we can.[​IMG]
