I have been wanting backyard chickens for years. My daughter wanted to have them but her subdivision wont allow it, so she talked my wife into it!! We bought a Barred Plymouth Rock and a Rhode Island Red yesterday and are getting a Calico Princess and an Americana tomorrow. we will be deciding on a coop in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned cause I'm probably going to ask a lot of questions....lol!!

G'Day from down under Chickenchitter :frow Welcome!

I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

Please do check out the Topic of the Week discussions Pork Pie mentioned. I have found these to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining.

If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.
