    Hey everyone,

    Thanks for the add. We are very excited to jump into the world of chickens. We don't have any yet. I want to learn as much as possible to find the chickens right for us.

    Welcome to BYC. Click on 'The Learning Center' at the top of the page. Then go to the forums and read and question away. Plan and you will be set to go - good luck.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. You may find the learning curve more gentle if you opt for 4-5 month old pullets, rather than day old chicks - less hassle and you get eggs faster!

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - just type the name of your state in the search box.

    All the best

    It's best to plan and be prepared first - so you can settle down and enjoy your birds when you get them. Have you thought about what type of chickens you would like, meat birds, layers, pets or lawn ornaments. If there are children in your family, you should probably pick from the docile breeds.

    Thank you, we do have children. We are definitely going to choose wisely, and find our best fit. We definitely want pet/layers.
