    Hey everyone - I'm a pure newbie - as in, no chickens yet! [​IMG]
    Hubby is a former city-boy who won't let me get them yet.

    Hoping to learn and live vicariously through you guys till I get my own flock!

    Welcome to BYC! Don't feel bad about not having chickens just yet! You can use the time between now and when you do get them to research breeds, feeds and housing options. I kept a journal for 2 years of all the research I did and found it really helped me know which breeds I wanted and how I wanted to raise our flock after we did get them.

    Hello [​IMG] and [​IMG] You're gonna love it here! We're a friendly bunch and some of us (not me, I'm still learning) know a great deal about raising chickens. You'll learn a lot and have some fun, too!

    [​IMG][/img]Welcome. That's sound advice about taking the time to learn as much as possible before getting your birds. This site can help you to avoid some of the mistakes the rest of us have made. I'm sure you will love this site.
