    Hello! My wife and I recently moved to Byron Center MI and are interested in raising chickens. I've never had chickens before but want to raise them for the purpose of eating eggs and teaching our children responsibility. I am joining to hopefully learn more about caring for chickens as well as building a proper coop. I look forward to conversing with all you and thanks in advance for all your help!

    Hello, Nick, welcome to BYC. Start with the Learning Center - upper left part of page. Then check out the forums, and question away. Plan and you will be set to start your flock in the spring.
