    Hello. I am wanting to purchase just a few baby chicks to have as pets. I have not raised them before, but recently moved to a place with a barn! I am excited to begin this adventure. I want to purchase from an Ohio farm, I would like to have all hens.
    Please contact me asap. These chckens will be loved for life!

    G'Day from down under Andi.... :frow Welcome!

    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.

    Please do check out the Topic of the Week discussions Pork Pie mentioned. I have found these to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining.

    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 ;)

    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.
