    I've always lived in cities where backyard chickens were banned, or was living in apartments. My boyfriend and I are in the process of purchasing a house 7 hours up North and I will be able to finally legal own some hens!!

    I'm really excited to start building the coop and to get my hens, because, let's be honest. Chickens are the cutest animals ever.

    Hi and congrats on your land purchase.

    On this link you'll find lots of information on almost every aspect of keeping birds - 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-archives

    This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in that link, if you have not already done so. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.

    Best wishes

    Pork Pie

    I have my heart set on buff Orpingtons. They're so fluffy and winter hardy, which where I'm moving currently holds the record for the coldest day in all of Ontario in 1938 at -58° Celsius.
