hi all! I joined this group mainly because I have never owned chickens before but recently decided to get some to join my family lol. I have 5, they are 7 weeks old now. I still don’t know if there are any roosters in the group but they are growing good and so much fun to sit and watch. I have 1 white crested black polish that we suspect may be a rooster, but still very uncertain. Time will tell I guess. Any tips on raising chickens is welcomed. I have read every article and watched videos and feel pretty confident, but won’t pass up advice.

Hi and welcome to BYC

On this link you'll find lots of information on almost every aspect of keeping birds - from coop building ideas, to incubating eggs - https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/

There’s a link on the page above to the Learning Centre - it’s a great resource. If you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

Each week, various topics are discussed, which can also be a great resource - https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/topic-of-the-week-thread-archives

This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in that link, if you have not already done so. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.

Best wishes

Pork Pie
