    Namaste!
    My name is Melody.
    Mom to 4.
    JoJo 19, Damian 16, Harmony 9, Trinity 8. Happily married 9 years.


    My husband and I just bought our first house & although we don't have alot of land we have a big ample backyard and are really wanting to learn everything we can about chickens so that we can bring 2 or 3 home to live with us if its possible.

    Were both big animal lovers and someday hope to own a ranch. (or at least live on property large enough to have a few horses & other farm animals).

    So yes I am an extreme newbie to chickens, a blank slate to the fullest. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] So glad you have joined us.

    If you can build a coop large enough I would recommend at least 3 or 4.

    If you haven't already done so, you should investigate the learning center articles, there are quite a number to help you get started.

    Please visit the coop and run forums to see what you will need to house a flock.

    Feel free to ask questions. I hope your plans for your own Backyard Chickens becomes a reality. They are fascinating and fun.

    Thanks so much! Yes I am really thinking my kids will benefit from the chickens as well. They are big animal lovers like their father and I so im hoping we can get alot of knowledge in the next few months so we can have the chickens move in by September.
