    Im new to raising chickens but have had a new found intrigue to experience this joy lately! I havent bought my chickens yet, so I'm literally at the first step beyond checking local laws for becoming a backyard chicken farmer, and basic chicken knowledge. I welcome allll suggestions and am thrilled I found this place!

    G’Day from down under misskissme4eva [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some good starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    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]

    I just got my first chickens in Colorado 2 weeks ago and it's already been a huge learning experience. Good luck! You can find answers to just about everything on this site and if not, start a thread and someone will answer you within a day usually! The first night I brought my pullets home the coyotes came, 5 of them, one walked right past the coop, to welcome my flock to the neighborhood I suppose, but it's a great place to live and I'm hoping it can be a great place for chickens too!
