    Hi, we have a small flock of chickens. Chickens are a new venture for us. I have experience with other animals, but we have never owned chickens or any bird before. It has been a very fun experience for our family. Our kids have really enjoyed watching our two day old chicks grow into laying hens. We got a variety of different breeds to start. Since we are new and learning as we go certain problems and question do come up. I am looking forward to hearing with how others deal with some of these problems.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Raising chickens with children is great for them to learn how to care for animals, lovely to hear your family is enjoying chicken keeping. The learning centre has some great articles on all aspects of keeping chickens https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
