    Hi,

    I wanted to take a moment to say Hi, I am new to BYC and this past weekend we picked up our first ever chicks from our local TSC. We have 6 ISA Browns, and 2 Silkie Bantams and are very excited to start raising these little darlings. We are in the North East (NJ). Trying to decide on best coop options now and I will post asking for some advice on that later but just wanted to introduce myself to the community.

    Hi and a warm welcome to BYC. Congrats on your new chicks.

    The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Joining your state thread will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area, which can be helpful (just type the name of your state in the search box).

    All the best

    This is probably a really stupid question but does any one know what the jabber is on your community profile. Is it the thing you see at the bottom of every post? I'm really bad at computer stuff so sorry if this is a very silly question to ask.
