    Go to the forums and start with "Raising backyard chickens" and "Chicken breeds". If you have a question to which you can not find the answer, ask in a thread. Someone will have the answer. Welcome to BYC.

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] The best place to start would be the Learning Centre here:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    If you look in the brown header you will see sections on coops, breeds etc that will give you some ideas on what breeds are available and what coops you can build (much cheaper than buying!). If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We're here to help.
