    Hi and welcome to BYC


    Here’s a good link where you’ll find lots of information on almost every aspect of keeping chickens - from coop building ideas, to incubating eggs - https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/


    There’s a link on the page above to the Learning Centre - it’s a great resource. If you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.


    Each week, various topics are discussed, which can also be a great resource - https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/topic-of-the-week-thread-archive

    Hello and :welcome from Connecticut! I had to check a map; you're way up there! (I have relatives in Ocala, my boyfriend lived in Fort Pierce for about a year, and others in the Kissimmee area.)
    I feel almost new here myself, since I had to give up my chickens some time ago, and don't come on here much--but I might be moving later in the year, hopefully to a better place to keep chickens.
