    But I'll just start by saying I'm a proud hen mother to 6 beautiful brown hens about 7 months old. Get one egg daily from my girls. We just moved (me and my family plus chickens) to our very own new house! Yay. And don't be surprised if I'm the one asking many many rookie questions. They seemed very content at our other house but change does things to anyone.

    Hi Sam and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. You are correct, chickens hate change, so a move to a new environment will certainly throw them a bit of a curve ball. Don't be too alarmed if egg production declines for a couple of weeks or so. You're very welcome to ask any questions that you may have - we are all here to help.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=learning+centre and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you


    All the best
    CT

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Some of us are here 24/7 or seems like it. If you've got questions we'll help you find answers. If not, we'll just make something up - JUST KIDDING. [​IMG]. However, IF you have time sensitive issues, please don't go offline after posting. There is no way we can reach you, if you don't stay online.
