From Michigan first time

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm Nikki this is my first time I have raised egg laying chickens and I'm so excited to start I don't know much about it but I am ready to learn. I am going to have my chickens free rang during the day and in their house at night. I can't wait for all of the help I will get from everyone.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

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

Glad you could join the flock! The learning centre would be a great place for you to check out ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center It has lots of fab articles that will really help you with your new chicken adventures. I'm sure you will enjoy your new layers very much, it's a fab hobby that's lots of fun and very rewarding too.

:welcome  glad you have joined us and congrats on getting your own flock.

 

I am jealous of all who have the ability to let theirs free-range, we have too many predators here.

 

Do explore the issue of predators to make sure your flock stays safe.

:welcome

 

x2 on the Learning Center and your state thread...both are great resources.

 

Free ranging has it's good and bad sides. If you can not accept losing an occasional chicken to predators, then confined to a covered run (with plenty of space) is the safer way to go.
