    My family and I just moved to an old farmhouse last summer and we are starting to get things ready to raise chickens (among other things). My hubby had chickens growing up but I am ridiculously ignorant about any and all "farm animals" so I'm trying to gather as much information as I can since I'll be the primary caretaker. We have 3 kiddos that will be helping me out as well.

    So, I know that I'll ask alot of obvious, dumb questions to start, so please be patient with me. [​IMG]

    Is there a "brand new, I don't have a clue what I'm doing" section of this board? [​IMG]

    Quote:Several. Start with the learning center -- link at the top of the page. The coop designs section is amazing, too, even if there is already a barn or shed or something you'll use for a coop on your new property. Then go to FAQ's and look through what topics are linked -- way too much to read all those threads at first, but it will give you an idea what's there.
