    The Wife and I are considering fetching up some laying hens, and this looks like a good place to learn some tricks of the trade.

    Looking forward to figuring out the details, with some experienced help!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I'm sure you and your wife will really enjoy raising some laying hens. You really can't beat fresh eggs! The learning centre has some fab articles that you will find most helpful in getting your chicken venture under way. Here is the link if you have not already checked it out ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    Be sure to ask any questions, everyone here to help and very friendly.

    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Hi and welcome to BYC. In addition to the learning centre, your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best

    There is a ton of information available here and a lot of helpful, knowledgeable members. The Learning Center, using the Search feature and asking questions are all good ways of learning about poultry.

    Thanks for joining us, it's nice to have you here!
