New here and new to chickens

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello everybody!

We are new to raising and keeping backyard chickens. We are finally in an area (North Central Iowa) were we are allowed to and have the room for it :)

Currently we are building our coop and our baby chicks will / should arrive on April 5th. We are all so excited!

We are, me Sandra, my husband and 2 kids (11 and 3). We also have 2 indoor cats, 2 dogs. And we just noticed that a farm cat also moved in :)

I am very thankful to have found this site so I can read up on and get as many information as possible.

I'm looking forward to network

Thank you

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

Congrats on your upcoming flock! If you haven't already, check out the Learning Center, it's full of good articles. And saying hi on your state thread is a good way to "meet" other members (just type Iowa in the search box and it should pop up).
