    Hello from western NY.
    First timer with 11 week chicks and am so thankful for the mild weather so far. I was nervous about starting a flock in fall, but seems as though all is working out in our favor!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! It's lovely to hear things are working out for you with your flock :clap
    What breed/s do you have? At 11 weeks they should be pretty much fully feathered so that sure ease some of the worries about heading into winter.

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your flock in the future.
    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    I have 5 Black Australorps, 5 Buff Orpingtons and 5 Silver Laced Wyandottes! A lot for a first timer, but so much fun!

    That's a lovely mixed flock you have there :D

    Keeping chickens sure is a lot of fun and very rewarding too. Don't know where I'd be without mine now.

    You picked really good breeds, are they straight run or sexed? Welcome to Backyard chickens.

    It would be fun to see a photo of your flock if you'd like to share.

    Thanks for joining us!
