  1. Hi,
    I have wanted chickens for a long time. I put them on my bucket list and, now have the chance to try to raise a few.
    I could be completely out of my mind! I have been reading on BYC for a while, finally joined. I hope I am a good chicky mama!

    You'll be just fine. Start your chicken education at the Learning Center and branch out to other forums as you need them.

    LOL, welcome. Sounds like what I did too. I was on every chicken website I could find learning all I could about chickens before I got my chicks from Murray last year. I started out to get just enough to keep my small family in eggs but then I ended up with twice as many as I intended. Be careful of chicken math! It will sneak up on you.

    Welcome to BYC from West TN! You will do fine, day to day they are at least for us easy to care for, but on the occasion that you have a challenge that is where BYC will shine!

    Hi there, [​IMG] and welcome to BYC!

    Oh, you are not crazy! You are going to love keeping chickens. They are so much fun, affectionate, leave you treasures in the nest boxes and are quite entertaining! You won't regret it.

    Great to have you aboard and enjoy your new adventures!
     
  8. Thanks for the welcome. They made it through the night and they are all cleaned up with fresh water and food. (Yay)[​IMG]
