    Hello! My fiance (farmguy2007) has had chickens before but I am brand new to them. We are expecting a shipment the end of March and doing lots of research and I'm super excited! Four silkies are included in our order and that's going to be fun. [​IMG]

    Just wanted to say hi! We live in Indianapolis, IN. We will be browsing quite a bit, and can't wait to build our coop.

    Oh, does anyone know the best way to introduce our two dogs to the chickens and what age to do so? What are your experiences with this?

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] Go to your profile (top right corner), scroll down to where it says "Your forum Signature", on the right you'll see "Edit signature"

    If you type "introducing dogs to chickens" into the advanced search bar you will find loads of threads with good tips and info. Good luck!

    That's really weird, I've looked all over the profile page and can't find anything that says that. Hmm....

    If you click on "My Profile" you'll get your "Community profile", below that Recent Activity, i.e. threads you've started/posted on and below that pics you've uploaded (if any) and below that you should see you signature.
