Hello, My family and I are new chicken owners. We just got our first 6 hens from my brother in law this past weekend. I have them in a small coop in our porch until I can finish our back yard coop.
My wife and I have 2 boys 11 and 9. We are hoping they will enjoy this experience and be helpful raising the chicks. (Hmmm we'll see)

I stumbled across backyard chickens while trying to google info for our coop. We moved to Alabama 5 months ago from Clearwater Florida petless. we now have a chocolate lab and 6 new chickens. our time is usually spent at our boys sporting events.

I'm sure I will be bugging everyone for info. So Thank you in advance.

Jason

Hi Jason,
welcome-byc.gif


It sounds like if you stay in AL very long, you're going to have quite the petting zoo, lol. Raising chickens is a great hobby for the whole family, I hope your boys find it fun.

If you haven't already, check out the Learning Center for all sorts of helpful articles on raising poultry:
