    Hello Everyone - I am in York SC and my daughter has joined the 4-H club. We were going to do the pullet project but I can't manage 12 chickens at this time so I have decided to just do our own little backyard coop with 4 chickens to start. I am looking for the best coop at the best price and plan to search the site for ideas. I am also going to work with Tractor Supply to get the chicks as long as they have the breeds that I think will work best for us. So thanks for having this site and see you all here!

    Welcome to BYC, Alicia. Glad you decided to our flock. Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for children. My granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) loves our chickens. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Do you have a breed preference?
