Welcome to Backyard Chickens! We are glad you joined the flock! BYC is a helpful site providing all the information you need to know about poultry! There is always space for more members on the BYC roost! There is a lot to know before going out to buy chickens. Although the information isn't always necessary it is very helpful! Especially when it comes to choosing breeds! They are so different in character and purpose! Hope you enjoy it here as much as we all do!
