    .... (or shall I say chicken about chickens? Ha!)
    Signing up for BYC and I am so excited about all the knowledge and online-community knowledge sharing! I have been back and forth on the idea of having backyard chickens since our city "trialed" and recently passed a change to the old by-law which didn't allow them. I am so eager and excited to get them but I am also hesitant that they will be quite different from the pets I am experienced with (dogs/cats/pocket pets).

    Right now as I plan my coop layout I find I have a lot of questions, and will likely be making my way to the appropriate forums for that! But I definitely wanted to say "HELLO"! and share my excitement in being a part of BYC :)

    Grown birds might feel strange to you but, I expect you will warm up to chicks just like puppies or kittens.

    Thanks everyone!! I have been reading as much as possible on the Learning Center! Hopefully I will have a plan for a coop soon, and hopefully by spring I'll have some pictures for you!
