Calling all BYCers:
What is that #1 piece of advice you'd throw out there for newbies?
Build a nice coop and run. Safe from loss.
Don't buy chicks just because they're cute and fuzzy now.
Buy/make the biggest sturdiest coop and pen you can afford.
No matter how hard you try there will be losses in your flock.
Don't spread diseases! Nobody wants chicken STDs.... Antibiotics are scarce! LoL (Am I allowed to say STD?)
Don't let them on your new couch.
I'm serious about that. Dumb as it sounds. Chickens will poop
on the furniture. Don't ask me how I know this, just take my
word for it.
Those beautiful little baby chicks will learn to hop. Then they learn
to fly. And your little house dog just loves them to play with.
Spook...who knows lots of useless things
Um... What is someone who doesn't have chickens supposed to say?
Try not to take it too seriously. I try to spend at least a few minutes every day just watching and enjoying the birds.
Beware of the chicken math.
Stick to just a few breeds while
Starting out. Do research on the breeds you plan to keep and just enjoy the joy of keeping chickens
