Hello. This is my first post since registering last month. I have been trying to learn as much as I can. I don't have chickens yet but look forward to getting chicks and building a coop. There is so much information on this site it is almost overwhelming.

I like your approach of learning all you can and then taking the poultry plunge!
I do thinnk, however, that while BYC is an excellent educational tool, experience is also a great teacher. After a month..go for it and enjoy!

My best advice is to get the coop built FIRST!
Our previous neighbor moved to a house where
chickens had been raised, he was getting rid of
all the old cages. We built the coop, but the cage
frames and wire was a definite life saver for the baby
chicks. We built a brooder to put inside the coop, then a
bigger brooder as they grew, inside the coop. This kept
the babies out of the garage, back porch or basement.
I think it also let them know where home is. Build the
coop first. They grow VERY fast!
