    Hi folks! I'm Joe and I live in the Portland metro area. We just started our adventure in raising chickens (which we've wanted to do for years). Currently we have 10 week-old-or-so chicks (raising a few for some friends) so we'll be keeping about 4-5 at the end. Glad I found this great resource!

    Greetings from Kansas, joerumore, and [​IMG]! Great to have you in our community! If you're new to the poultry scene you might want to take a look at the informative articles in the Learning Center in the link below - they will set you up for success!

    And if you want to chat with some Oregon chicken people, find your state thread in the following link and say howdy:

    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!! [​IMG]

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

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. 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.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
