    Hi my name is Vivian and this is my first year raising chickens. I actually got them last April at our local feed store and they are now laying eggs daily. All 5 of them. I had 6 but one died. They are the funniest things to watch. Whenever I go outside they come running towards me, that's because I always have treats in my hands, and even when I don't have treats they still come running towards me. And they even follow me thinking I'll give them treats.

    Hi Vivian, [​IMG]

    Chickens sure learn how to be little beggars fast, don't they? Glad you are enjoying them and it's great you're getting eggs now.

    It's nice to have you here!

    Hi Vivian and welcome to BYC. People seem to think that chickens are pretty stupid, but they seem to wise up when food is involved!

    The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Joining your state thread will also put you in contact with other BYC members in your area.

    (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread)

    The members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
