    Hi everyone, obviously I'm new here! My family upgraded our standard backyard garden to an urban homestead last summer when we added a chicken coop and 4 beautiful ladies to our backyard. I've been a bit of a lurker, coming to the BYC forum and scanning old posts for answers to my many questions, but since making what I think may be a mistake with chicken waste in my garden soil, I decided to finally join and ask my very first question! Hopefully, I find the answers I need like so many newbies have before me. Looking forward to tapping into this endless fount of BYC knowledge!

    G’Day from down under RowleyUrbnHmstd [​IMG] Welcome!

    I see you have found the various Forums to ask your questions so I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
