    Hello my name is Dane and I'm a backyard chickenholic. I've been wanting to do this for a while and my wife and I just moved from Oklahoma to Alabama. She finally said yes to having a few chickens and said I can start with 3. So I am super excited to start this adventure and keep checking on hereach for advice!

    Hi Dane, thanks for joining us! Don't be too surprised if your wife decides chickens are pretty fun to have and wants to increase the flock size.

    Once your wife actually gets to be around chicks, it's most likely she will be enchanted by them. That happens with husbands too. They are just irresistible .

    G’Day from down under Dane [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some links to great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    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.

    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 [​IMG]
