    Howdy folks,

    Just wanted to introduce myself to everyone here at BYC. My family and I are located in eastern Ontario, Canada about an hour south of Ottawa. We have never raised chickens before, but we have day olds arriving the end of April. We have built are coop and are slowly but surely getting things ready, but we still have lots of questions. Looking forward to tapping into all of your experiences here and learning all about the world of backyard chickens!

    Out of curiosity, if any of you are located around our area, it would be great to know some folks in the same climate, region, etc.who are also raising chickens.

    Thanks

    Fox and the Hen

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great to have you onboard,

    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 will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area, which can be helpful (just type Canada in the search box).

    Dennis, great to know there are some folks close by. We are brand new at this and our day old chicks arrive April 21/22. Hopefully we can share experiences and help each other out.
