    I've been lurking for weeks now, researching and reading all about how to start raising backyard chickens. I'm just a wee bit obsessed and a whole lot excited! Thanks to all the great information and posts on here- I feel pretty well prepared for this new adventure. Our chicks are coming in at the end of April so the hubby and I (well, mostly the hubs) have a few weeks to get it all together[​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. You are certainly in the right place for chicken obsession. Bet get the whip cracking on hubby - those little balls of fluff grow quicker than you'd dare to imagine!

    All the best
