    Hey everyone! I'm new to the area of Woodland,CA and new to the wonderful world or raising chickens! I'm going to be starting my family from chicks and building my own coop. I'm so excited to begin and I'm sure I'll be stuck on BYC well after I'm a tried and true veteran coop mama

    G’Day from down under pluckynewbie [​IMG] Welcome!

    That is very exciting! I recommend a visit to the Learning Centre; lots of good tips there: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    and some great coop ideas here if you do not already have any: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/2/Coops

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    Best wishes!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock when they arrive, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
