    Hello. I am new here. My name is Candy, husband name is Scott. We have 3 children and have been raising Nigerian Dwarf goats for a year now. They are great!
    We are new to chickens so I am sure we will have tons of questions haha. We bought a coop today and plan on raising our chickens with our goats.
    Glad to be here. :)

    Hi :welcome Candy & Scott

    Glad you could join us here! Redsoxs has left you some great links to check out and I'm sure you will find them very helpful. I too love goats but just don't have the room right now to keep them but I hope to in the future. I'm sure you will do a great job with your new chickens, do you know what breed you are starting with? Please do ask all the questions you need to, everyone here to help.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow

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

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    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]
