    Hello! My name is O and I am brand new here and new to keeping chickens. I have always adored birds and can't wait to start my own little urban flock this summer in June or July. Glad to have a community like this one as I am sure I will have many many questions as I set out on my own chicken adventure! I'm interested in having 2-3 chickens primarily as pets and of course for their eggs :) If anyone out there has information / first hand experience regarding keeping chickens in an urban setting, I'd love to hear from you!

    Greetings from Kansas, O, and [​IMG]! Great to have you with us! There are a lot of urban chickeners on BYC so you should get lots of advice! First stop you might want to consider is the Learning Center. It will give you the ins and outs of being a responsible chicken keeper. Good luck to you and have fun!
