Hello from Farnborough, Hampshire. UK

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

Came across this website, which seems to be full of useful information.    

 

I have my run and coop set up now ready for 3 hens that I am inheriting from a friend this Sunday.    Never owned chickens before, so it's all very new, but looking forward to it immensely

 

Jon.

Hi Jon and welcome to BYC.

 

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

 
Joining your country thread "UK members, please say hi"  will put you in contact with other BYC members in your area, which can be very helpful.
 
 
All the best with your new flock.

Hi Jon, what breed of chickens are you getting from your friend? If you aren't sure, you can post pictures of them here for some help identifying them:

(Read the picture guidelines first.)

 

Have fun with them!

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
