    At the top right hand side of the screen, just under My Profile, you will see your user name. If you scroll over it you will see a few options, one of them is Edit My Signature. Hi, and [​IMG] and please post pics as soon as your chicks arrive, I'd love to see them [​IMG]

    Here are a couple links that will assist you on your poultry adventure. For learning the ins and outs of raising chicks read these two articles:

    And beyond that, the Learning Center is loaded with useful articles that will assist you as your chickens grow: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    You can connect with other MA poultry peeps in your state thread in this link:

    Regarding your signature....I cut and pasted a short passage from the FAQs page of BYC....looks like you need a few more postings is all:
    Q: I'm a new member and can't add a profile signature, post an article, review a product, etc.
    A: Some features (like profile signatures, posting articles, reviewing products, using our Buy-Sell-Trade sections, etc. require you to have actively posted in our community forum anywhere from 10 - 20 times.

    Best wishes with your new chicks and enjoy the ride!! [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under s k y [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some good starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    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]
