    Hello everybody I'm new to BYC and the general chicken owning thing. We are getting 2 australorps, 2 delawares and 2 dominiques. Anyone have thoughts on these choices? Opinions? Tips?

    Greetings from Kansas, australorp41, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined our community! Sound like great breeds to me. A couple of good threads are linked below.

    The Learning Center is a great place to pick up the tips and knowledge for general chicken care and maintenance.

    The Baby Chicks forum is Q & A but reading the old threads is a super way to pick up valuable knowledge and insight.
