    I'm a newbie here. Been around chickens for a while now. My 16yr old daughter has her own flock, I am just a helper to her for now. One day when we have more land I hope to have my own since she'll be taking hers when she moves away. I am looking forward to learning as much as I can. I hope to have a self sustainable homestead soon. My home schooled children love hands on learning.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    In my opinion one of the best things you can do for a kid (or teen) is let them keep their own flock of poultry! It gives them a good sense of responsibility and a fun hobby to keep them out of trouble... best thing my parents did for me growing up was get me chickens.
