    Hey, so we are new to chickens! We have 12 babies that are 3 weeks old now! We have a black australorp, a blue australorp, a gold Wyandotte, a silver wyandotte, a black sex link, a novogen, a buff Brahma, a light Brahma, a ameracuna Easter Egger, a salmon favorelle, a Rhode Island Red, and a barred rock! (Literally reading from the receipt)

    I don’t know what we’re in for, but these babies are getting big quick and going thru the food like crazy!

    We live in SW Washington on some acreage as of May 2017. Wish us luck! I think we’re gonna need it!

    G’Day from down under mtboyakgirl :frow Welcome and Congratulations! :clap

    Tee hee, love that you were reading from the receipt; that is a lot to remember initially without it.

    I do 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.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. Just some examples that may be of interest to you at this stage:
    Topic/Question of the week - Brooding and supplementing heat for chicks
    Topic of the Week - Raising Chicks
    Topic of the Week - Getting Started, Keeping Chickens
    Topic of the Week - Keeping the Flock Safe from Predators

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, 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 ;)
