    Hello Peeps, I am recently retired educator looking for an interesting hobby. Following considerable research have selected something fowl. I have a huge yard in a small community. Looking forward to starting from scratch.

    Hi and welcome to BYC


    Here’s a good link where you’ll find lots of information on almost every aspect of keeping chickens - from coop building ideas, to incubating eggs - https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/


    There’s a link on the page above to the Learning Centre - it’s a great resource. 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.


    Each week, various topics are discussed, which can also be a great resource - https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/topic-of-the-week-thread-archive


    You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find Your State Thread

    Best wishes
