    Howdy! I'm a wife and mom in Nashville. I grew up raisin chickens, but haven't owned any as an adult. I'm looking to start my own little coop and looking for 3-4 hens. I miss the things my grandad raised me to do and want to share the joy of owning chickens with my kids.

    Congrats on deciding to get chickens! There are lots of good resources here to help you on your way. The Learning Center is a great place to start. You can also find your local state thread and chat with people who live close to you :)

    Howdy, and welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for kids. X2 on Pyxis; if you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
