    Hi, my name is Kim. I suggested to my husband that maybe we could get some chickens. He said fine, and now I am on track to learn as much as I can before acquiring them.

    Hi Kim and welcome to BYC! The Learning Centre is a great place to start off as it has loads of info on anything chicken. Joining your state thread (just type your state in the search box) will also put you in contact with other BYC members in your area.

    All the best

    Hi Kim,

    You have came to the right place, I am a newbie as well and over the past month while I have been waiting to get my chicks this community has been a plethora of good information. I agree with other start in the learning center and then use the search for specific questions you have I promise there is a thread about it. Good luck and make sure you post pictures of your chickens or you will be in trouble [​IMG].

    Hey Kim,

    Welcome aboard! I'm brand new at this too but I've learned a lot here that made the experience a quite a bit easier. Good luck and let us know how you make out.
