    Good day to you all!
    Not sure what to say... my husband just bought me my first chicken coop, it is used and about 3 years old. It will need to be cleaned and then this spring I will purchase my first chickens.I am new to having chickens and wonder if I am in over my head. I have found wonderful resources here so I might survive.

    Greetings to you as well. Sometimes at the start it feels like you are in over your head because you worry about everything. Then you come to your senses! When you stop worrying about everything that could possibly ever go wrong, you start enjoying them and wonder why you were ever like that in the first place. They are very rewarding.

    [​IMG] Chickens are relatively easy to take care of. BYC is a great place to go to if you have any questions about them once you get them.
