    Hey all we are new chicken family and new to BYC. We just got started with 23 chickens that are between 3-5 days old. Open to any advice. We are choosing to go GMO free and free range during the day and cooped at night. We look forward to this and look forward to all things that come with BYC.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great that you have joined us and congrats on your new little flock. These links may help a little:

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - 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.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area -

    All the best

    G’Day from down under Offtheroost80 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you and your little ones 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.

    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]
