    Just new to this new "addiction" of owning chickens. Have a very small flock, 1 rooster and 6 hens. Loving the entertainment and reaping the benefits of fresh eggs for the family!

    Hello Brenda, and welcome to BYC. I agree, there's nothing better than having your own fresh eggs!

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and 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.



    All the best

    Hey Brenda Smith as sumi left you definitely go check out the learning center for information of updated articles for old and new chicken owners! I have 5 hens and 1 rooster and they are a blast. I love getting free breakfast every Sunday morning and have enough to give some away! I hope you enjoy BYC and make sure to post pictures of your flock and give us updates on how you are doing here https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/40/family-life-stories-pictures-updates All the best of luck to you and your flock!
