    Hi Y'all! I am new to BYC and to raising chickens. My husband built me the most amazing coop and run and we have 6 very cute chicks about a week old. So far we have had a couple with PB, but other than that they are all healthy and happy! They seem to be growing so fast! [​IMG]

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

    As CTKen has given you some great starting points, I will just wish you and the littlies all the best. They are adorable.

    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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
