    I am new to the site and new to chickens. I have wanted to raise my own chickens and have just purchased a piece of property in Toney, Alabama with the hope of starting a small hobby farm. My 4 year old granddaughter and I are going to learn about chickens together. I wonder if there is anyone in the Toney, Alabama area who might let us visit and get some hands on experience. I bought my granddaughter a copy of Chicken magazine and she actually sleeps with it!

    I don't mind traveling a little if she gets the chance to experience finding eggs or feeding. I look forward to getting lots of good advice!

    Thanks,
    Pam (and Kendall)

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] You guys should check out out the Learning Center here. It will tell you all you need to know to get started. For some hands-on experience I'd suggest look for your state thread here:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

    And see if there is a member near you. We have so many members here, I won't be surprised if there is more than one!

    Hi and :welcome

    Yes, I'm sure you'll find lots of people in Alabama in sumi's link. That's one of the states with lots of representatives on here. :p
    Good luck with your farm and I hope you and your granddaughter can share many great memories together!

    Greetings from Kansas, pam13, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! I think it is great you involving your granddaughter in your chicken adventure. My best advice is to go to the Mississippi thread below and see if some locals can help you out. Best of luck to you and have fun!!
