    Hi everybody! Chicken newbie here, and happy to be a part of this great community! I live in northern Colorado with my wife, two cats, and four (roughly month old) chick(en)s. I work at a brewery (where I have access to nearly ENDLESS malted grains which should make for some happy chickens), and my wife teaches at our university here.

    I'm currently in the process of building our coop and run, and really looking forward to some warm spring days watching these silly birds cruise around the backyard! This site has been a big help to me so far, and I'm hoping that I can use it for continued learning, and to share with others what I have learned. Cheers!

    Hi and welcome to BYC - you got some lucky chicks - having access to that grain [​IMG]

    The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Joining your state thread will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area, which can be helpful (just type the name of your state in the search box).

    All the best
