Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! The learning centre would be a great place for you to start. Here is the link ~http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
You have certainly come to the right place for all the learning. The learning centre has great articles on all aspects of keeping a flock happy, safe and healthy. It also has a lovely section on getting started too.

Be sure to ask any questions that you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly.

Enjoy BYC frow.gif

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Raising poultry is a great hobby for the whole family and it's good for the kids to appreciate (and know) where their food comes from. If they enjoy the birds, this could be a hobby they can continue the rest of their lives.

 

If you're interested in 'meeting' other members in KY, you can find them here on your state thread:

http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread

That can be a good resource for finding breeders, swap meets, how to deal with local weather concerns, etc.

 

Have fun!

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
