    Hi everyone! I'm new here and live in Colorado Springs. I'm brand new to chickens and we are still in the planning phase. We live in town and are thinking of starting with four girls so we aren't overwhelmed! I'm looking forward to learning from everyone here!

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] Check out our Learning centre here:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    for a quick intro to chicken keeping. Have fun with your flock and when it comes to building/buying a coop, make sure you make it a little big bigger than needed, because sticking to only 4 chickens is not going to be easy [​IMG] actually, now that I think about coops, there are some lovely designs for big (and small!) coops here:

    I'm not going to get started on breeds, because you may end up with 20 chickens and blame me! [​IMG]
