    Hello All!
    I'm a young hobby farmer who recently decided it would be fun to have some chickens. I love a good farm fresh egg for breakfast ! I live outside Ottawa, Ontario (Canada) and I have many species on my farm but these are my first of the bird variety! I have 5 Barred Rock chicks, two weeks old! Any advice or tricks or tips would be appreciated ! My hubby thinks I have become chicken obsessed (maybe a bit)! I want to fill up on as much knowledge as possible !

    Welcome! The best place to go for filling up on information, is the learning center. You will find lots of good advice there.
    You will also find plenty of people to encourage you with your chicken obsession. :)
