    Hello all,

    I am new to chickens, I haven't purchased any yet but hopefully, I will sometime next year. I found BackYardChickens.com when I was searching for how to care for chickens and build chicken coops. I want to eventually move to a small farm and have animals and get off the grid. I enjoy cooking, old movies, riding bicycles, camping, and astronomy.

    I am a self-employed genealogist which I live and breathe all things genealogy. I like to sew and make dolls for my great nieces.

    G’Day from down under RIchkat07 :frow Welcome!

    You might be interested in downloading this free e-book My First Year With Chickens

    I do 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 Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    Personally, I have found the Topic of the Week articles a great resource and a one stop shop for questions which may have already been discussed within the BYC membership group.

    Best wishes for a bright and cheerful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
