    Hello all. I'm new to the chicken world but have looked at this site for the last month and finally decided to join. I've learned a lot already and hope to learn more from the experts here on the site.

    If you haven't already checked it out, the Learning Center is a good place to start...it's full of helpful articles on all sorts of poultry topics.

    Thanks for joining us, it's nice to have you here!

    I do have 7 chicks that are currently in the brooder. I had 8 but lost one this morning after my first experience with pasty butt. I love the site so far and actually patterned my coop after one I saw on here. Hope they don't mind. My chicks are Golden comets, barred rock, and brown Leghorns.
