Hi all you feathered-friend-loving folks!
I've finally made a profile after lurking around here for years! We started our flock last spring, although I'd been indulging in chicken dreams long before that. I appreciate all the great info on this site and spent hours looking at all the coop designs before getting our chicks.
We started with eight chicks of five different breeds: RIR, Buff Orpington, Easter Eggers, Silver-Laced Wyandotte and Brown Leghorn. Then our friend's co-worker, who'd bought chicks the same weekend we got ours, discovered she could only keep two, so our flock doubled overnight, adding a gang of Barred Rocks and two Black Australorps.
It has been great fun raising our gals and watching them grow--I just enjoy them SO much--it's hard to explain, but, of course, I don't need to explain it here, do I.
Hope to get a page posted about our coop soon.
Happy new year and happy chicken days to all!
