Glad to join!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hello,

Glad to join! I will be getting chickens for the first time in March! Does Anyone have recommendations as to what kind of chickens I should get? I am looking for good layers and cold hardy breeds! Very excited to join the chicken craze! Thank you!

:welcome  Click on the learning center at the top of the page.  Study the forums and question and plan away.  Come spring you will be ready to start your flock.

There's an article in the Learning Center titled (I think) "Pickin' the Right Frickin' Chicken", that would be one place to start. There are also breed reviews you can look at here on BYC. Then there are the members on your state thread that might have some advice (just type your state name in the search box to find your state thread).

 

Just keep in mind, breed characteristics are generalities and each bird will have it's own personality which may or may not match those generalities.

 

Have fun with the planning, ask questions, and good luck to you!

You can post on your state thread - just put name in the search box and it will come up.  Then you can ask what breeds are the best layers and do best  in the climate.:welcome

Hello and welcome-byc.gif! I'm so glad you've joined us here! I hope you enjoy chickens just as much as the rest of us do when you get yours! Here's an article I wrote a couple months ago on calm breeds of chickens:

Not sure if there's any breeds that would interest you in there, but go ahead and take a look. smile.png
