    Hi, welcome and I'm sure you can deal easily enough with chickens after raising cows - just don't try to milk your chickens though - some members have tried already [​IMG]

    The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Joining your state thread will also put you in contact with other BYC members in your area.

    (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread)

    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

    x2 on the Learning Center and your state thread...both will be very useful.

    Good luck with the chickens, hope you enjoy them!

    thanks everyone, this is our second coop but first on our own :) I have been reading and there is lots of good info. We are getting 3 rir and 3 barred rocks. Hopefully it will make for a good pairing. We have decided to call ours lil' deuce coop.
