    We bought the coop and I'm trying to learn everything possible about chickens before we get them in early February.

    I have so many questions I don't know where to start. But right now, I'm focusing on the coop!

    Thanks in advance for your amazing content and answers--past and present and future!

    Welcome to BYC from another Californian up here in the Western Sierra Foothills!

    BYC is an amazingly wonderful resource for everything poultry and I shudder to think what my flock MIGHT have suffered had I not found it myself.

    No question is too silly or stupid - we were all new at this once. :)
