    My name is Rich and my wife and I are new owners of chickens. We currently have 10! I am in the process of building a 12'x10' coop called The Chicken McMahansion! Yeah. I'm excited. I am almost done with the mansion and will be posting the progress pics soon. I learned of backyardchickens through Pintrest and I have learning and studying ever since. I am looking forward in continuing my education.

    G'Day from down under Rich :frowWelcome!

    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.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, 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.
