Just guessing, as you did not provide brand and model of the
keyboard or system recognition messages, or which FreeBSD system
version you're using...

If it is a USB keyboard, it should be recognized by the ukbd driver
(USB keyboard driver). You can use the "usbconfig" program to find
out more about the device, and "usbhidctl" and "usbhidaction" for
HID control. See the corresponding manuals for details.

Examples from "dmesg" output:

	ugen1.3: <EIZO> at usbus1
	uhid0: <EIZO USB Monitor Function,
		class 0/0, rev 1.00/1.10, addr 3> on usbus1

This is the HID component of an EIZO monitor.

	ukbd0 on uhub8
	ukbd0: <Mitsumi Electric Apple Extended USB Keyboard,
		class 0/0, rev 1.10/4.10, addr 5> on usbus2
	kbd2 at ukbd0

This is a USB keyboard.

When attaching the keyboard to your system, you should see
something similar.
