    Hello All,

    I'm new to the site but had found good info and discussions on here. I just bought a chicken coop and I'm looking to get a small flock started. I live in Hudson WI and I'm looking for a place to buy around 10 chicks to start with. Also, I'm new to having chickens so if anyone has a link to a good start up plan that I can read that would be helpful. I grew up on a farm so I know a bit but that was 30 years ago. Thank you all for any help and I'm sure I will need more of it soon.

    The best place to start is with the Learning Center, it has a lot of helpful articles that will get you back into raising chicks.

    You might also like to chat with other members that live in WI. This link will help you find your state thread:

    Good luck and have fun!
