    Hi I'm Ashley, from central Cali, and about to own a 5 acre parcel. I'm excited to start homesteading and start with chickies. I am also nervous as Ive never seen myself as a livestock raising type of girl, but I am drawn to it now. Wish me luck!! [​IMG]

    Hi Ashley and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us and congrats on your impending chicken adventure. Whilst there's lots to learn, it's far from difficult and you'll be amazed at how much experience you garner within a very short time.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

    Good luck!

    G’Day from down under Ashley [​IMG] Welcome!

    Congrats on the new land!

    Ken has already given you some great starting points so I will just add that 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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC, Ashley!

    Chickens are a lot of fun and not too much work, a good animal to start with.

    Great to have you with us!
