New to chickens

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am building my first coop and will be ready to buy some chicks soon. Can't wait to get started. I live in central Florida and there are a lot of places to buy chicks. But I'm not sure where the best place is. A local organic farm sells chicks i believe I'll start there. They also sell eggs at 11.99 for 20, I think kinda high so I'll be getting my own real soon.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
