    Welcome to BYC!

    I spent many years in KS and one thing you will want to keep in mind is your weather (how it can change in a heartbeat). Be sure you get birds that can tolerate both the heat and the cold.

    Have you checked out the Learning Center yet? Lots of good articles there for the new poultry keeper, try this link:

    Let us know if you have questions. Good luck to you!
