    hello all, newbie here. We just started breaking ground for our chicken coop. No chicks yet, want to make sure their home is ready first. I’ll admit, I’m chomping at the bit to get those adorable babies!!

    Good for you on getting things ready first! Those little chicks grow so quickly, it will be helpful to have their coop ready.

    Make yourself at home here, thanks for joining us!

    Chick days will be coming up soon at the feed stores very soon - earliest shoppers find the best breeds. Hint, hint. Two is such a lonely number:gig

    G’Day from down under HarleyJane.. :frow Welcome!

    Very exciting :clap

    I do 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.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. These two may be of particular interest to you at this stage:
    Topic of the Week - Getting Started, Keeping Chickens
    Topic of the Week - Keeping the Flock Safe from Predators

    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 ;)
