Just Starting from Oregon!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

So happy to find everyone and this site!  I just moved to a farmhouse with no neighbors and an empty chicken coop in need of repairs.  I am working on that now in anticipation of chickens.  I have been doing a ton of research on breeds and love this site.  I have 6 guineas that are 6 weeks old.  I am going to wait to get chickens in the spring so as not to worry about the winter.  I will be a regular gathering information and asking questions.  I live in Maupin, OR (central).  I have dreamed of this moment all my life and I finally got my wish.  I plan on free ranging during the day and in the coop at night.  They will be total pets .I am an animal person and I have rescued many animals and birds.  I have 6 cats (all rescued), feed wild birds and have a friend who is a retired vet and helps me with all my new patients. I tend to dive in and ask questions later.  I hope that doesn't get me in trouble!  Glad to be aboard!  VikkiOR

It's nice to meet you  Vikki,   Welcome to Backyard chickens  :frow  You may want to check out the' coops', section  to see if the coop needs any modification  and probably the predators  threads also .  They will pop up  and make your acquaintance sooner or later.   The Learning Center is a great place to start for any poultry ambitions.

 

Lastly I would suggest posting on your state thread to check in with others and see how they manage their birds and what breeds do best in your area.
