    Hi,

    My name is Dixie. My husband and I are considering having backyard chickens but we know nothing on how to get started. I joined this forum to gain knowledge before diving in. I look forward to learning from everyone.

    The Best place to start a chicken education is the Learning Center. Hope you will enjoy BYC as much as we do.

    Hi Dixie, as DD says, the learning centre is the best place to start. If you have a topic of particular interest, just type it in the search box and you will get lots of threads and articles on the subject.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread

    All the best
