    Hi everyone,

    Time to introduce myself...we got four hens about a month ago, pre-laying, and got out first two eggs today! We love our tiny dinosaurs, and have lots to learn. We have (we think) a barred rock, australorp, New Hampshire red, and a mystery chicken who might be an ³ Easter Egger who gave us a beautiful light green egg and has smallish black tufts on her cheeks. Big Bird, brown, gold, and black lace...kind of snooty and aggressive.

    Anyway, glass to be here!

    Hi Jan and welcome to BYC - great to have you onboard!
    If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken.

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (just type your state in the search box). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
