    I would suggest that you check out the Learning Center above, the best place to start your chicken education. Have you decided what breed(s) you would like to have? Do you want layers, meat birds, pets or lawn decorations? Welcome to Backyard chickens. [​IMG]

    I'd like layer birds - I'd really like buff orphingtons and ameraucanas
    I'll check out the education section! Thanks

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

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    Best wishes to you and your flock when they arrive.

    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]
