    Hey I am new here from Southern Ontario, Canada.

    Always had chickens as a kid so when me and the wife bought a little place in the country it was natural for me to get some. I built a little coop and had 4 last year, lost one and just introduced an additional 6 yearlings to my existing 3. The wife loves the eggs, and I dont mind the company while I toil in the yard on my days off :).

    Been leeching off your forums for quite some time, but decided to take the big plunge and join, I am a few questions I will address in days to come on the forums. Look forward to mooching off you.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. To refresh your chicken keeping memory - the Learning Centre is a good place to start, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken.


    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (just type your state in the search box). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best

    A lot of people start off as lurkers then see the benefit of being able to ask questions or share experiences and join.

    Glad you're here!

    Welcome - I think you may especially enjoy "Canadians, check-in-here," thread so you can find out what is happening around you. Maybe even find some Bycers, in your area.

    Glad you joined us at BYC.
