New to chickens from Arizona!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi there! My husband and I just got 3 hens from my
Mother. A mama and two of her babies. Australorps. We live in Scottsdale neighborhood currently. I grew up with chickens when I was young and am excited to have them now! We have two dogs and a cat, so introductions have been interesting. Glad to have this site to go to for advice and questions!

Welcome to Backyard Chickens, so glad you joined the flock.  Honestly the best way to handle dog/cat introductions to poultry  is NOT to let them meet at all, and keep them Apart.  Dogs /cats + chickens - generally = dead chickens.  Even if they are just "playing" with chickens  - it's the chickens that end up mauled or dead.  You never hear of a chicken killing a dog or cat.

Welcome to Back Yard Chickens ! :D

Hello,

 My name is Steven. I have been raising Chickens and other birds for about 2 years now. I will say it is really fun and addictive. I really enjoy incubating eggs and watching them grow into beautiful birds.

 

I am currently looking to buy or trade for some Ancona Chickens if you have some for sale please let me know.

Welcome, to BYC.  A seemingly endless amount of information onsite.

 

The vast majority of  dogs, and cats can be Chicken Friends, if properly & carefully introduced.  Your future challenges may have more to do with addressing extreme summer heat.  Again....Welcome!
