    Hello all! our family is new to chickens and a friend told me about this site.
    I have raised and rescued potbelly pigs for a few years now. Our family just eats so many eggs it makes sense to raise chicken.
    So any and all help is appreciated as we start this new adventure.

    The best place to start is the Learning Center, there are articles there that will get you off on the right foot. The Search feature (upper left corner under the logo) is really helpful too.

    Make yourself at home here and always feel free to ask questions!

    G’Day from down under Dizzle1300 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already been given some good starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    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.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
