    Saying hello from Northern Alberta, Canada. I'm a brand new chicken keeper and have 9 little Polish LF chicks. There are 8 Buff Laced and one little Golden laced chick. They're still less than a week old but I'm just loving the group power naps and chick yoga they seem to be doing all the time. I've been planning for them for a while now and once we finally got our farm they were the first new additions on the list. Looking forward to being part of the BYC community. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm from the neighboring state just south of Alberta (NW Montana). If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Welcome to BYC, you may also be interested in the thread "Canadians, check-in-here." There's a good chance some chicken folks live in your area.

    As you're already finding out, there's no better show than chicken tv! Have fun with the chicks.

    Happy Holidays!
