new in Philly

  1. Hi.

    New to chickens. Found a stray in late October. We decided to keep him. Now we're thinking 2 hens. I'm sure you'll see me here asking all sorts of stupid questions for awhile.

    Thanks

    Howdy from Kansas, and [​IMG]! Great to have you in our community! As a chicken newcomer you might want to check out the Learning Center here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center It is loaded with great articles covering nearly all aspect of chicken keeping! Also, if you want to chat with some of your in-state poultry keepers, find your state thread in this link and say howdy:

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

    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]
