    I have just joined B Y C and I am trying to learn about safe care, feeding, coop building, etc. I have been reading a lot of post and this is my first post hope to learn as much as I can and have fun in this new adventure for my family.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] There is a lot of great info here. I'd suggest starting with the Learning Center, as the articles there cover quite a range of topics, from hatching eggs to health issues, predators and feeding. For coops have a look at the Coops section for designs and the Coop & Run - Design, Construction, & Maintenance for practical advice and tips. Then, for more about the different chicken breeds have a look at the Breeds section. Enjoy!

    Welcome!!! My first chickies are six days old. I learned a lot from reading "raising chickens for dummies" and reading threads on this site, specifically under raising baby chicks. Good luck!!

    Do your research and planning and then get your birds. That's the smart way of doing things! Welcome to BYC.
