    My family are going to be moving from city to relatively rural. 3 acres, everyone around raises chickens, good feed and grain nearby. At this point it's all planning -- we haven't even closed on the house yet! -- but the kids and I are very excited about getting some hens. Looking forward to getting to know you all.

    Raising poultry is a great hobby for the whole family! If you haven't already, check out the helpful articles in the Learning Center but if you have questions, feel free to ask.

    Good luck with your closing!

    Greetings from Kansas and :welcome! Great to have you aboard! That's exciting that you'll be moving and can get some poultry. If you're a newcomer to the chicken world you might want to spend some time perusing the Learning Center here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center It is loaded with valuable information on nearly every aspect of chicken keeping. Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC! :)

    Hello there, and welcome to Backyard Chickens! I hope your move goes over smoothly, and you are enjoying chickens in no time! I wish I'd had BYC account the day I started considering getting chickens. Why did I wait almost 2 months after I got them? Enjoy BYC!
