    Hello, I am considering adopting a couple of rescue chickens and have just started to research what is involved with keeping chickens.

    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]



    BYC has a very useful learning center [​IMG][​IMG]




    Do you have a coop to protect them as this is so very important for their safety and your peace of mind it will not need to be large just something to keep out the predators wile you are not supervising them [​IMG]




    If you have any questions please just ask and help will arrive in time

    The Learning Center may be the best place to start. [​IMG]

    If I adopt the rescue chickens I will get a coop first, we do have raccoons and other predators in my neighborhood. I have already checked with animal control and I am cleared for 2 chickens, no roosters. I will look at the learning center, TY for the suggestion!
