    Last night I was blessed by my friend, gifting me with his 3 backyard chickens. It's something I've fantasized about for years. Today I'm reading through CC&R's in order to figure out just how challenging this may or may not be.

    Hi there, [​IMG] and welcome to BYC!

    Chickens can be a lot of fun and quite rewarding. And over time, they will have you trained up well! [​IMG]

    But to get you started, you might check out the learning center here of BYC for some tips and pointers about chickens....

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    And of course if you have other questions, there are many other topics in the forums that you can post a question in. You can also search the archives here for answers to many questions.

    Great to have you aboard and enjoy BYC!
