    Hello all,
    I have been a member since 1/15 but am just planning to start on my first coop and little [​IMG] peeps. Any advice is appreciated. I'm eager to start raising chickens, rabbits, goats and ducks.
    Love and hugs,
    Cheryl

    Nice to meet you Cheryl- hope you enjoy Backyard chickens as much as we do. You may also want to join your state thread and avail yourself of their local knowledge as well.

    [​IMG] My advice is to start small and work your way up to owning multiple animals. That way you can provide proper housing for all you have. Good luck!
