    Hello, everyone! I live on the edge of the Colorado Plateau on the Mogollon Rim at 7000 feet. I raise rabbits and am very interested in learning more about chickens and raising quail. I have three kids, and I try to get them to help me with the animal chores so it can be a learning experience for them. I want my kids to learn about more self-sufficient lifestyles.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great that you have joined us. Keeping chickens is a great hobby, with the fringe benefits of eggs and meat. You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you as they will be able to give you location-specific advice, which can be crucial.

    Good luck
