    Welcome to BYC. Backyard chickens can teach the children lots of good things. My 9 year old granddaughter loves hatching chicks.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for children. My granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) loves our chickens. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of chickens do you have?
