Good Morning,

My husband and I bought a 40 acre farm in Western NC a couple of years ago and just this spring I bought my first chickens. 2 leghorns and 4 isa browns. I'm loving it. My husband built a chicken tractor for me (it's a little to heavy, hard to move) and I've finally got it through to our Yellow English Lab that he can't mess with the chickens when I let them out.
Thanks for letting me join. I have much to learn.

Hi Diana and welcome to BYC. 40 acres and only 6 chickens :eek: - you have amazing powers of self-control :)

You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

Each week, various topics are discussed, which can also be a great resource -

You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area -

All the best
