    Hi everyone.
    First I need to say... This is a informative and well put together site. Compliments to everyone.
    My name is Randy from Southeastern Az.
    I recently moved to the country and am able to raise chickens. I am in the research mode on all this Back Yard Chicken Raising.
    Like I stated before, I am finding this site to be very helpful and informative.
    Thank you all
    Randy

    Very nice to Meet your Randy. Glad you joined the Backyard chickens flock. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. The Learning Center is the best place to start a chicken education, I kid you not.

    Hi Randy and a warm welcome to BYC - enjoy your research - there's lots of info here, but you will learn even more once you get started as there's no substitute for experience!

    Hi Randy, [​IMG]

    One thing that makes raising chickens so much fun is that there is always something new to learn about them. And the eggs aren't bad either!

    It's nice to have you here!

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



    Good luck with your flock and you will find raising chickens in the desert is a bit different then in cooler places but just remember always have plenty of clean water for your flock and some shade to rest in .......
