    My wife had a coworker who just moved into a new house, they had 7 chickens and no room at the new house so we took their chickens, we have never had chickens before,

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Hi and welcome to BYC

    On this link you'll find lots of information on almost every aspect of keeping birds - from coop building ideas, to incubating eggs - https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/

    Each week, various topics are discussed, which can be a great resource - https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/topic-of-the-week-thread-archives . Ditto the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/

    This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in that link. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.

    Best wishes

    Pork Pie

    Hi & :welcome

    That’s very kind of you to take the chickens in and give them a new home. I’m sure you will enjoy them very much.

    Enjoy your time here on BYC and all the chicken chat :frow
