    Hi! I'm new here. I've had my own chickens for probably just over 6 months now and loving it! I had chickens as a child so I know a bit about them but still learning every day. I currently have four chickens - three of my own and one 'foster' chicken that belongs to someone else but is with me because she was being bullied quite badly (is partially bald due to feathers being pulled out, poor thing). Looking forward to discussing all things chicken!

You sure have come to the right place for all the learning, the learning centre has some fab articles on all aspects of keeping chickens ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Wishing you the very best of luck for the future. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow
