    Hi I am a new Member who just got four chicks of my own. One Black Australorp, one Buff Orpington, one Barred Rock, and on jersey giant. They are one week old right now and are all hens. I would love any tips and tricks for my new babies and I hope to use this site to give them the best possible life.

    Welcome to BYC! Knowledgeable group of people are abundant in this site. My first advise keep feed and water clean everyday and keep the brooder and coop clean, no smell and no disease. In the brooder I top their beddings every 2 days if not everyday so they don’t walk and sleep in poo, clean thoroughly once a week. Raise the waterer and feeder accordingly as they get more active and bigger. Come on experts chime in! I like to do it slowly on newbies LOL.

    G'Day from down under WinterLynx999 :frowWelcome and Congratulations! :clap

    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.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    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 ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.
