    Hi Everyone!!

    I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Nicole and I live on the east coast of Florida "The Treasure Coast" area. I am new to the whole raising chickens. My husband has done a lot of research and I thought this site would be my way to work on my own.

    We currently don't have any chickens and would like to get a few (maybe 3 at the most). My husband is interested in having chickens for eggs.. and I think our teenage daughter should participate in 4H with one. I have not looked into the 4H part of things, so hopefully some of you could help me out and point me in the right direction on those grounds. I will look more into this myself, however any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Nicole

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    If you are thinking showing the birds, make sure you get show-quality (SQ) birds, and not those from a hatchery (they are often good layers and producers but usually do not have the right look for showing).
