    Hi Everyone

    My friend Terry gave me this link to join, since I have been dabbling with the idea of raising chickens and now my daughter's class is hatching eggs...I figured why not take the plunge!

    I don't even know where to start, so I am going to get navigating the sight. Any suggestions on step one, would be fabulous!

    thanks and looking forward to this new journey

    Greetings from Kansas, mamatobes, and [​IMG]! Happy you are taking the poultry plunge!!! A great step one is simply to learn what makes a chicken tick and how to care for them - it really isn't all that hard. The Learning Center link below kind of takes you through the life of a chicken, telling your the needs and requirements as you go. I wish you the best of luck!!
