Newbie in Northern Virginia

Kids brought home a chicken coop today as a birthday present. Guess it's time to do this. So glad to have found this awesome resource. Looking forward to this new adventure.

:welcome  glad you have joined us.

 

You should visit the Learning Center to get you started.

 

Since they could "bring it home"  it is likely one of the prefab kit coops?

If so, please pay attention to the amount of room chickens need.   You can also post questions under the Coops forum to get specific advice on housing and protecting your upcoming flock.

 

Good luck with the new adventure.

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
