    Greetings everyone. I am new to raising chickens. My main motivation is to provide eggs for my family. Also, to take good care of the chickens.:)

    Hi and a warm welcome to BYC - glad to have you join us. You sure are in the right place for everything chicken! The learning centre is a great place to start, as is your state thread. We are friendly bunch and what members collectively don't know about chickens is not worth knowing, so feel free to post any questions that you may have.

    All the best

    Welcome to the forum! Those are great reasons to keep chickens. I find them to be great stress relievers too. We're glad you joined us![​IMG]

    What breed of chickens do you have? Feel free to share a photo if you'd like, it's always interesting to see other members flock.

    Thanks for joining us!
