New in Illinois

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello!   My name is Becka and I recently bought my first chicks.  I've got 3 Buff Orpingtons (1 a cockerel), 2 Barred Rocks, 1 Speckled Sussex and 1 Black Laced Silver Wyandotte.  My son-in-law, the farm boy of the family, has built me a chicken coop that looks like Dr. Who's tardis!  I'm hoping to raise enough layers to provide my family with eggs and also meat birds.  (And hoping I'll be strong enough to process the meat birds.)  I am very glad to find this group.

Hi Becka and welcome to our community.

 

You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre, as NFC has mentioned.

http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

How  cool is that?  I have seen photos of  Hobbit style coops AND   Tardis coops.  Love something different like that.  Creative people  have no limits.  Would love to see a photo.

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
