    Hi folks! I live in St. Augustine, Florida - Zone 9A. I don't have chickens at the present time, but plan to in the near future. I've been studying up on raising chickens so I can be prepared to do it right once I start. I think raising chickens and other small livestock will help me live a more self-sufficient life style. Hopefully there is someone in my area, on this forum, that can guide me as to good sources for my flock. I look forward to communicating with you all! Being a beginner, any info is welcome.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined us.

    NorthFlChick has given you a good link to chat with your Florida neighbors. To learn about keeping chickens, I also suggest taking a look at the Learning Center, as it has lots of information for new chicken owners or those thinking about getting chickens: Learning Center Articles

    We'll be happy to help in any way we can!
