    This is our 2nd time raising chickens. We have 7 Buff Orps, a Buff Rooster and 7 Australorps. They're almost 4 weeks old now and and we're almost done building the barn for them. We also plan on getting 3 Nigerian Dwarf does later this year. Can't wait!

    Wow you are starting a little mini-farm YAY
    We have had chickens for 5 years and my Dad still won't let us get a goat. My Mom REALLY wants a milk goat.
    A friend told me that there is nothing cuter than a baby goat.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken (and a few threads on goats).

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

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (just type your state in the search box). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC,

    All the best
    CT
