    Good evening!
    I am new to chickens, and this site kept coming up in my googling. :)

    We have four chicks in the bathroom right now and they are three-ish weeks old. Hopefully they are all pullets, since we live in a city and that's all we can have. They are Asian Black, Golden Comet, Cinnamon Queen, and White Rock. (Kylo Hen, unnamed, Cleo, and Princess, respectively.)


    I'm an animal lover, nerd, and mom to two human daughters (pretty sure on this one.. I didn't get them from bins at TSC ;) ) My boyfriend and I just bought a house together in Fredericksburg, VA. I'm super excited because it came with a coop and a run.

    :welcome

    Congrats on the new chicks! Have you built a coop for them yet? They grow very fast, so take lots of pictures (and share with us if you'd like).

    Thanks for joining us!

    The previous home owners had chickens, so there's a coop waiting to be cleaned out, if these darned Nor'easters would knock it off!

    Here are pictures of the chicks when we first got them. :)

    G’Day from down under CluckinBell :frow Welcome and Congratulations on your new home and becoming a chicken parent! :clap

    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.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    Your babies are adorable! :love If you would like to share more Pictures and Stories of them, 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 ;)
