    Hi Renee and [​IMG] - glad that you have joined us.

    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 may be useful as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - just type the name of your state in the search box.

    All the best

    Do you already have other chickens? Or maybe ducks...that's a cute avatar photo.

    Thanks for joining us!

    I have had chickens, ducks, and geese (picture is of a Canadian goose), but only as babies - I just relocated to CO from CT where I incubated eggs for friends and raised the little guys until they were old enough to go to their farms. Where I lived in CT did not allow me to keep my own flock, so now that I live in CO, I can't wait to have my own!
