    Hello everyone!

    I have been lurking and learning the last few weeks while we think about getting backyard chickens here in the City of San Francisco. I've never raised chickens but I am ready to learn and my two eight-year-olds are very excited by the possibility of pet hens. That's right, these hens will have names and when they stop laying I will become a victim of chicken math.

    I'm looking to convert a playhouse into a coop and will post for advice on that soon. Meanwhile, I look forward to reading all about chickens in these forums and hopefully maybe someday I will learn enough that I can contribute as well.

    Best,
    Diva_Esq

    Greetings from Kansas, diva esq, and [​IMG]! Great to have you aboard! I think it's super you are getting chickens for your 8-yr. olds. Lots of great lessons to be learned with raising chickens. Good luck to you and have fun. BYC will be here to help should you need assistance!
