    I have no experience with chickens. I wanted fresh eggs and I now have 8 spoiled rotten baby chicks. I'll take all the advice I can get

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great to have you onboard. Getting your first egg from one of your flock is always a great day - gotta love this chicken keeping malarky!

    All the best

    Welcome to BYC. How old are your chicks, and what breeds did you get? Some breeds lay sooner than others.

    x2 on the Learning Center, there are some very helpful articles there. You can always use the Search feature to find information...it's in the upper left corner, under the logo.

    Have fun with your chicks!
