I first learned noticed individual chicken personalities as a youth, working for a chicken farmer. We've had chickens for many years. Always a chicken paradise; comfortable coops, plenty of free space, multiple feeders/waterers.
It's peaceful sitting with chickens who want not and have plenty. I provide them with sanctuary & subsistence, they provide me with the same.
When the rest of the world gets to be too exciting, I go to the aviary & enjoy the simple lives of free chickens.

Glad you're here !

A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)
