Hi all!  Just joined today...but we don't have chickens yet.  I think I've finally talked my husband into it, but have been researching coops and breeds for a while now.  Great site!  I know I will learn a lot!!

Welcome to BYC.  The best place to start a chicken education is at the Learning Center  above.  It will even answer questions you haven't thought of yet.

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

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run.

Don't be surprised when your husband bonds with one special chick and then he'll be crazy about them too. That seems to happen quite a bit :)

 

There's a good article in the Learning Center on selecting breeds:

And I found this chart to be a good resource on breeds:

Don't forget about using the Search feature (upper left, under the logo) to find information. There's a ton of it available here and a lot of friendly, helpful members.

 

Thanks for joining us!
