    I here to get the info I need prior to our family getting chickens! I want to do this right the first time:) We moved to a small 2 acre lot with farmland, woodland, swampland all around! Our own little paradise! We have our indoor pets but now we are almost ready for a few pet chickens! Hoping to rescue some "Easter chicks" from the city folk who ignorantly purchase them at pet stores because they are cute... That's our plan, at least!

    Welcome!
    If that's your plan, keep an eye on Craigslist the week after Easter.

    Greetings from Kansas, crc310, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined us! I like your Craigslist plan! Everyone wins - folks are relieved of their impulse buy and you get chicks! Good luck to you and have fun on BYC. You might check out the following threads when the big day comes. The first is about raising baby chicks, the second is the Learning Center which gives you the ins and outs of being a responsible poultry keeper!
