    Hello all. Names derrick I'm about to start some backyard pimp sorta speak . I'm going to start the construction for my coop soon . I only want about 4-6 birds any pointers would be great. I'm new to it all . All I want out of my chickens are the eggs. So any laying tips and tricks would be awesome . Thank you so much.

    You might want to start in our learning center for some tips and hints on raising your new flock. There are also sections in there to the coop pages and the breeds pages as well so that you can get an idea on how to build your coop and pick your breeds.... (I will include all the links mentioned to make it easier for you to find.)

    Welcome to BYC!

    Just one tip...you are wanting 4-6 chickens, plan your coop size for a couple more than that. I was planning on just a few, hmmm, I'm way past that now and having to enlarge my coop.

    Good Luck and post pics of your coop.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you. I'd definitely reccommend going to the Learning Center-- it has lots of information for the new chicken keeper.
