    Hi everyone! I'm so new to chickens! Getting our coop this week-end, and picking up 3 chickens the first of the month. 2 Americana and 1 Rhode Island Red - I hope! Can really use all this wonderful advise from "seasoned Chicken Girls"! When coop is finished will send pix. Thank you in advance for your expertise!

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

    How exciting! Best wishes to you and your feathered family when they arrive.

    I recommend a visit to the Learning Centre; lots of good tips there: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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]
