    I never know how to start these [​IMG] my name is Tammy & I live in Oregon. I don't have chickens yet but I'm hoping to have some this spring. I've already talked to my city & got approval, I've talked to my property management company & they okay'd it, now I'm just hoping I can get approval from my home owner [​IMG] I'm praying everything works out because I love this house, but if chickens are out of the deal I may have to find another place.

    I have a small amount of experience with chickens threw my FIL but IMO he didn't take care of his very well [​IMG] so I stayed out of the situation. I have owner other farm-ish animals, my last was a goat & rabbits (which are next on my list if I can talk my husband into it)! But, I'm really glad I found this site because I have a feeling I'll need some help/advice along the way.

    Anyway, that's me.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    So glad you could join our community!!! I sure hope you can keep chickens in this new place! Some people have resorted to House Chickens since they are unable to keep them in the neighborhood!! Yes, they put a diaper on one or two of them and they are now house pets! LOL So it can be done.

    Well, keeping my fingers crossed you can keep a few hens! Make yourself at home here and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Welcome to our flock!

    [​IMG] so glad you joined our flock. Congrats on the approval to get your own chickens. There's loads of info on this site. I would suggest you visit the learning center for basic information. There's lots of coop ideas in coop/run threads. Feel free to ask questions and share your experiences. Again, welcome and good luck with your new adventure.
