Hello My name is Ilea and I'm scared of chickens---oh wait, wrong group....

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Well, it's sort of true anyway. I'm more scared of killing them or harming them though than actually being scared of them. Chickens are cute. I'm hoping to start my coop in Blacklick OH sometime this year so I joined to learn some of the things to expect and to watch out for.

 

I have no idea what kind of chickens I want, except I want them to be non-cranky.

 

 

Just wanted to say hello :-)   Have a nice day! Thanks for reading! :D

Why are you scared of a chicken?

 

They are completely harmless and you cane asily beat them up.Roosters,I could see beings cared of those little brats,but hens usually are not aggressive.

Ha! I love your title.  Welcome to the world of chicken people!     Lots of good advice here on every possible aspect of how to do chickens, raising them from baby chicks, etc.  This site is an amazing resource. You may even find local people to connect with/get chickens from.

Be sure to read the breed reviews on this site, some breeds are known for their excellent temperament.    It is a good idea to study beforehand.   Chickens are very hardy, don't be afraid you'll kill them.   Good luck!

Hello :frow and Welcome to BYC!

 

I'm sure once you get chickens you love them! Chickens (hens and rooster and any type of breed)  can be nice or mean depending on how you raise them. I'm sure you'll do fine keeping your future flock healthy and alive :)! My favorite breeds (but I'm bios :D) are: Barred Rocks, Easter Eggers, Orpingtons, and Wyandottes.
