    Hello!

    My name is Pam! We don't have chickens yet. But we recently bought some acreage south of Fort Worth and I plan on having chickens. I've been wanting to do this for a long time, and I can't wait to get started. Right now, I'm reading and getting some ideas on what type of coop to build. I'm looking forward to learning more!

    G'Day from down under Pam :frowWelcome and Congratulations on your new home! :clap

    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.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. These two may be of particular interest:
    Topic of the Week - Getting Started, Keeping Chickens
    Topic of the Week - Keeping the Flock Safe from Predators

    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 ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.
