    We live on 5 acres in the county of Wetaskiwin, Alberta. I have recently retired and am excited to embark on a new adventure. I hope to purchase 3-5 laying hens in June and can't wait until it's spring and I can start getting our chickens home set up for them.

    Great to have you join us here at BYC. I'd say a chicken adventure is a top idea and you are certainly in the right place for help and guidance. I hope you enjoy being a member as much of the rest of us.

    All the best
