New member in Louisiana

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Getting started with 3 chicks (rhode island red, golden comet, and a plymouth barred rock). Our chicks are almost 3 weeks old now and seem to be doing great! They are all 3 growing like weeds!  I have been lurking and reading threads and finally decided to join the forum. I am working on the coop currently and will be posting a thread soon for some advice with that. Look forward to growing our little flock, which we intend to be more like pets that happen to lay eggs haha :D

 

We live in a fairly spaced out neighborhood with a half acre backyard.. we don't intend to have a big flock at all "planning" to max at 5 hens.. my wife really wants to include an ameraucana for the colored eggs so that may be next up on the list.

 

Look forward to learning from everyone here!

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
