    Hi! Our family is just getting started on chicken-keeping in our suburban backyard (just over 1/2 acre). We have two daughters who keep bunnies for 4H, so chickens seem like a pretty obvious next step. We're drawing up coop plans now, and are very grateful for all those chicken-keepers near and far who have posted info on their coops that gave us guidance and inspiration. We hope to start with six birds this spring. Looking forward to checking out all the resources here and seeing what other backyard chicken keepers are up to. Cheers!

    Hi and a warm welcome to BYC - great that you have joined us. I'm sure that you and your family will soon be addicted to chicken-keeping.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area -

    All the best

    G’Day from down under kendjen [​IMG] Welcome!

    Very exciting! I wish you all the best and good luck with your flock when they arrive.

    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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
