    Hello all I'm new to the chicken world out searching for ways to keep my flock healthy and happy. I never thought I would enjoy chickens as much as I do. Go figure they captured my heart.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    If people really knew just how adorable, affectionate and fun chickens were, there would be a coop in every backyard! Ha!

    Well you certainly have come to the right place for all the fun and learning! Have you stopped by our Learning Center yet? Lots of great articles on all the aspects of keeping poultry...https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Make yourself at home here and if you do have any questions about something, feel free to ask.

    Welcome to our roost! :)

    Cowgrl01, it is so great you decided to join our roost here at BYC! Yes being new at chickens holds it pros and cons. It definitely gets you more in than you can chew though sometimes! For example my chickens think they are lap dogs! You should definitely should out the Learning Center link TwoCrows linked and also here are some must knows for chicken raising.

    Not only are chickens one of the cutest animals ever they also give us the most delicious breakfast food for a warm Sunday morning! I wish you and your flock good luck and have fun!
