I have 2 silver laced Wyandotte, 2 golden Wyandotte, 2 Americana, and 3 salmon faverolle that I believe are about a week old. I'm starting my backyard chickens for myself and my 5 grandsons as family pets with the benefit of eggs! I found this site looking for information and it's been extremely helpful. If anyone has any extra advice for a first time chicken mama, it would be greatly appreciated

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.

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.

Please do check out the Topic of the Week discussions Pork Pie mentioned. I have found these to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining.

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 ;)
