    Hello, I am new to this website and raising chickens. I currently have Rhode Island Red, Buff Orpington, Black Sex Link, Asian Blue, and an Americauna. Three are around 2 weeks and two are around 1 week. I do not have a coop yet as I plan on buying and building a coop and run myself.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Have you visited the Learning Center? It is the best place to start a poultry education. I would also advise you check out the coop section & also predator thread.

    Hi and [​IMG] -glad that you have joined us.

    As DD says, the Learning Centre is a great place to start - https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    These links may help you for the moment.
