    Hey guys just joined the forum. I'm a chicken virgin, but I'm planning to get two hens (NO ROOSTERS!) soon after I build my coop. See you around!

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great to have you join us.


    If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    The coop section might give you some inspiration also.

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
    CT

    Instead of getting 2 chickens, I'd recommend getting 3 or 4. It's not uncommon to lose a bird (especially if you start with chicks) and you don't want to be left with one lonely chicken. They are flock animals and prefer being with their own kind. And if all 3 or 4 make it, you'll just have that many more eggs!

    Good luck to you, hope you enjoy your chickens and BYC!
