    Hi all,
    Been lurking around a bit am planning to get chickens once I am ready. I live in Sacramento CA and I doing my research before taking the plunge. My background is dog training and behavior, 30 years. I am pretty anal about doing things right when it comes to my animals so I am hoping to get lots of information here. I want to do this right but also do not want to get so hung up an every detail that I never do it!!!

    Welcome to BYC!

    It appears to me that you can be as AR or as casual as you want with chickens, so long as you adhere to the basic rules of cleanliness, nutrition, and housing.

    Have fun!
