I have a decent sized yard and am contemplating some Hens, nothing big nothing fancy, probably a half dozen, but im open to opinions to what the best number and breed would be best, I am in west metro west Mass. I do have open space behind my lot line , so security is gonna be a must, but I plan on building a sturdy coop. to keep the preds out. Also these will be pets in a sense, so a friendy breed is a must.

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.

BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. These two may be of particular interest:
Topic of the Week - Getting Started, Keeping Chickens
Topic of the Week - Keeping the Flock Safe from Predators

If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock 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 ;)

Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.
