    Hey y'all,
    FeatheredFanatic here, just wanting to say hello and tell you a little about myself. If fairly new to the chicken world, but I've learned alot from this community. Anytime I have a problem or question, Backyard Chickens always pulls through. Anyways, I've got about 20 hens or various breeds, from RIR to Silver Laced Wyandotte and Speckled Sussex. Many of my ladies were rescues from various places, which makes for alot of problems to be resolved, but I'm always up for a challenge.Thanks to y'all here at Backyard Chickens I've always come out on top. Thanks for all the great input and great chicken talk.

    Glad you're here !

    A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
    It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

    Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

    One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)

    Thanks for the warm welcome y'all. As always lots of great info. I learned about needing a first aid kit with my first rescue. A poor old lady with bumblefoot so bad it actually went though the webbing.Now she has a "pierced" foot, but doing great now. Thanks again y'all !!
