    x2 on the Learning Center, you'll find all sorts of helpful articles there to get you off on the right foot. And the Search box in the upper left corner is good for finding information about particular topics. Feel free to ask questions, there are a lot of helpful members here.

    Have fun with the chicks!

    [​IMG] glad you have joined us, and congrats on getting your own flock.

    Plan on needing more space for the flock than you expect and have your camera ready.

    Have fun, feel free to ask questions.
