    A very warm welcome to BYC from Kenya! The Learning Centre is a good place to start, but don't be shy if you have any questions - we all help each other.

    Good morning and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Do you currently have chickens or other poultry? CTKen is right, the Learning Center is a great place to start. It's full of articles on how to raise and care for poultry:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    There are a lot of helpful, friendly members here so ask questions when you need to. The Search box in the upper left corner of every screen can be helpful for finding answers too.

    Thanks for joining us, it's nice to have you here!

    It's good to have time to learn all you can before they get here and to get everything ready. If you don't already have a coop, check out the coop/run thread and the coop pages so you can be working on that. Chicks grow really fast and getting the coop ready for them can be a fun way of passing the time while you wait for them to get here.

    I have been doing just that, it's great seeing and reading all the different ways for constructing a coop.
    That's what brought us here people willing to share.
    Thank you very much
