    I am a novice chicken owner.
    Very new to here.
    Want to focus on Japanese bantams and Sulkies.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. I'm sure there are breed threads on both of the chickens you are interested in - just type the names in the search box.

    More generally, you'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center 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

    I haven't read much about the Japanese bantams but Silkies are very popular. If you just use the Search box, I'm sure you'll find a lot of information on those.

    Best of luck to you!

    G’Day from down under Gurk [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some good links and advice, I will just wish you the best of luck with your flock.

    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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
