    I am doing research, gathering information and planning for when I get some chickens. I would like to find a step by step guide on what to do in this journey of backyard chickens.

    I have not. I have watched some videos on Youtube about general rules and such. Are there any you recommend?

    I edited my above post with a couple of links. One of the books I have is the raising chickens for dummies, it's pretty good.

    Where do you live?
