    Hi everyone,
    My name is Tamara,my wife's name is khadijah and we're doing research now for our move to Florida in 3yrs,we plan to have several chickens and a small garden, we plan to buy two acres of land build either a tiny home or an container home. The reason why were doing a Change of life style is me and my wife have health issues and both of us believe that the store bought food we are eating is contributing to alot of our health problems.we are excited to learn about raising and caring for chickens, we are completely new to this kind of life style so please feel free to point us in the right direction , thanks and nice to meet everyone

    G’Day from down under Tamara [​IMG] Welcome!

    I recommend a visit to the Learning Centre; lots of good tips there: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your current local thread, the Florida one or both: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock when they arrive, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
