    Hey everybody,

    I've been reading off this sight for some time, especially for purposes of becoming a good chicken handler. I've had a flock for 8 months or so now. My girls are all productive and healthy layers. 2 grown hens from the original batch (lost one to predators unfortunately), and have 2 news chicks being raised in the brooder and slowly integrated to the flock via the 'see and no touch' method I learned from one of the threads here.

    I just now got around to making a forum account. I live in Memphis, TN, the Bluff City; home of the Memphis Grizzlies, Graceland, and the world's best BBQ. I look forward to getting to know the community and learn more as questions arise.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Many of us were lurkers before joining, me included! Good luck with getting your 2 new ones me see in. I too always use the see but don't touch and have great results.
    The learning centre has great articles that will really help you ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow
