Although not a newbie, it's been a couple of decades since we've kept chickens. I came here for a refresher. Many people have good advice. I've found great suggestions on various topics to resolve issues I remember from the past and to help simplify things. Don't use this forum as your only resource of information. Do your own research and think about your own needs as well. If it's too complicated you won't want to deal with it. Have fun and good luck.
