    I'm new to the chicken world. I've wanted chickens forever and I was finally gifted a couple for my birthday. They are being taken care of by my husband's cousin who gifted them to me at her place while their house is being built. I don't know a lot about chickens so I'm hoping you guys will be a great reference for me.

    I live in Ontario, Canada and plan on having the most exciting summer of my life!

    Please check out the Learning Center - it's the best place to start a chicken education. Also join the "Canadians, check-in-here." thread and you should be all set for the time being.

    Happy BIrthday too, better later than never.

    Hi to everyone. New to the chicken raising experience. I have only four chickens that are mine weeks old. So far I am loving every moment of the experience. So glad to find this site and all the other back yard enthusiasts.
