New to BackYard Chickens


In the Brooder

Hi everyone!
My boyfriend and I got chickens late summer 2017. We started with three and now have a total of 15! 14 hens and one awesome rooster. We have gathered them from different sellers (isolating them for a few weeks before introducing them). We have all different kinds of breeds. The rooster is a silver ameraucana the hens are Easter eggers, Rhode island reds, Plymouth barred rock, lavender orpington, ameraucana, silky/easter egger cross, red laced wyandottes, wyandotte/australorp cross and one mystery breed that is some kinda cross that I haven't figured out yet. I found out about this website by looking up some information when I decided to medicate my chickens for MG (last fall) and for some deworming information. My boyfriend and I are interested in possibly incubating this year so I'm eager to get information on the best way to do that as well as just get more information from more experienced chicken owners to make our flock the best it can be. :jumpy:)

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.

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

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. This one may be of particular interest to you:
Topic of the Week - Incubating eggs

If you have specific incubation questions, you can post them here:
Incubating & Hatching Eggs

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 ;)
