I am in Indianapolis. I am new to chickens but have raised parrots for 35 years. Since i am downsizing, I plan on raising a few chickens....4-12 to start. I have an almost 7 year old grandson , who will be fascinated by this new hobby.
Hello and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us.

I've no doubt your knowledge of parrots will be most valuable to interested members.

Here’s a link to the Articles section - There you’ll find lots of information on almost every aspect of keeping chickens - from coop building ideas, to incubating eggs.

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 -

:welcomeHowdy and welcome to the flock! Watching chicks, chickens, and kids grow together is a wonderful and fascinating thing. It is so much joy to see them have interest in each other as they grow each day. If you have any questions, concerns or issues please feel free to ask at anytime. Thanks for joining us.:jumpy:bun

Welcome to Backyard Chickens!

I live it! Parrots to chickens
Sussex And Orpington are gentle curious breeds which do well with children. Buy from a breeder. A bunch of them here on BYC. Both breeds have Clubs with lists of breeders. Same with Ameraucana fowl. Club and list ( Mike Gilbert). I am not familiar with Araucana but they lay lovely colored eggs. Have a Club too. Ann Charles at breeds top quality Araucanas.
