    Hello, My name is Heidi. New to chicken keeping. When we get our farm going to be raising chicken. So looking for info on the different breeds, getting started with raising chickens, want them for eggs. Ideas for coops and feeding ideas.

    Greetings from Kansas, Heidi, and :welcome. Great to have you here. BYC is one-stop-shopping for chicken wisdom. You might start at the Learning Center here https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    This will give you all the fundamentals to get you off to a good start. And here's a link to a chart comparing different breeds of chickens. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/296987/marty-s-massive-chicken-breed-chart-75-breeds
    Those links should occupy you for a bit. What are you looking for in chickens? Meat? Eggs? Both? Pets? Whatever the case, have fun on the journey! :jumpy
