    Hey, all!

    I am in Helena, Montana. I'm new to chickens, just planning to start a flock this spring. I'm glad to have found this forum, and thankful for all of you sharing your knowledge and experience! I have learned a lot already from reading on BYC. Thanks for participating in this community! I'm sure I'll have some questions for you down the road. [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under BigSkyBird [​IMG] Welcome!

    How exciting! I wish you all the best with your chicken venture.

    I recommend a visit to the Learning Centre; lots of good tips there: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    and some great coop ideas here if you do not already have any: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/2/Coops

    Finally, you might want to say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Hello and welcome to the forums. I'm from Kalispell. It's COLD here, but the girls are doing just fine outside in their coop and pen. They are hardy Montana girls.
