New Introduction!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! My name is Mary Lou and I am new to backyard chickens! I am in the research and preparation phase of owning chickens. We are working on our coop and fenced run. Soon we will be ready to get some chickens. I look forward to talking with you all and sharing stories!

Hi Mary Lou and :welcome - glad that you have joined us. 

 

You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre 

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. 
 
For what its worth, getting point of lay pullets (4 months + old or a bit older) is a more gentle learning curve than caring for day old chicks (and you get eggs sooner). Further down the road, chicks are fine as you will have built up more experience.
 
You may wish to consider joining your state thread  as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread
 
All the best

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
