New to the world of chickens and so much else. Moved to Florida from London, England back in 2000. Being from London I'm a real city boy of 67yrs. 5yrs ago I met the love of my life (she's American) we recently moved to a fix me up in the country, finished renovating the house, built a coop and run and purchased our flock of 12 mixed chicks. Lost a few to start with but they were replaced and now all are thriving. I visit this site most days, so much information and I have so much to learn. I take my morning coffee and go sit in the coop with them where they seem to think I'm a good roosting spot. I love it!!!

Glad you're here !

A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)

:welcome:woot Congratulations on your chickens, as well as finding THE one! I use BYC to gather lots of information about taking care of chickens. Don't be afraid to ask questions, as someone will certainly answer them!
