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

    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]

    Your broody hen should be doing all the hard work and also teaching her chicks how to be chickens. What to eat, what to drink, how to dust bathe and come to mama when she calls. A good broody is worth their weight in cold. Welcome to Backyard chickens.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I agree with D/Diva in that the mother knows more about keeping chicks healthy than we humans could ever do. As stated, food, water, shelter is just about all that's needed from we humans.

    Welcome to BYC! You have some advice already, and I know nothing about incubating/raising chicks, so I can just welcome you, hope you like it here and learn much more!
