    Well my wife and I jumped in with both feet and ordered 15 chicks to ship on April 10th. Then have a 2nd shipment coming at the end of June so we will see how this goes. Wish us luck!!!

    Yay yay yay!!!!! Having chickens is a blast and you won't regret having them. Whenever I'm down or depressed, I go sit and watch my chickens. :ya also, you can give them mostly any food scraps so you honestly never have to waste food. Also you always build a bond with you and your chickens which is always really cute and special (in my opinion lol)

    G’Day from down under ktex [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some links to great starting points, I will just wish you all the best; BYC has your back!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock when they arrive, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
