    Hello,

    Came across this website, which seems to be full of useful information.

    I have my run and coop set up now ready for 3 hens that I am inheriting from a friend this Sunday. Never owned chickens before, so it's all very new, but looking forward to it immensely

    Jon.

    Hi Jon and welcome to BYC.

    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 country thread "UK members, please say hi" will put you in contact with other BYC members in your area, which can be very helpful.


    All the best with your new flock.
