    Hi everyone. I haven't gotten any birds yet but came here to learn about them.

    Welcome to BYC! You came to the right place, this is Chicken Central. Great idea to learn before you leap!

    Thanks. I'm torn so far between getting chickens or getting doves.

    G’Day from down under otulissa [​IMG] Welcome!

    You could get both! [​IMG]

    I recommend a visit to the Learning Centre; lots of good tips there: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your doves or chickens when they arrive, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    What is it you want from chickens or doves? Chickens can give you eggs. I'm guessing if you got doves maybe you would want to breed & show them. In any case, why not just have both?

    I'd get eggs from this chickens but other than that either would just be pets.
