    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    So glad you could join our community! Good luck with all the butchering. I hear it is a bit daunting at first, but growing your own food is the best way to live. Good for you and good for the birds.

    Enjoy this new adventure you are on and welcome to our flock!

    Hi - you may want to go ahead and start your own thread in the "emergency/illness/disease" forum here https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures - so that those that can help are not confused by it being mixed in with someone's introduction thread.
