Hi all. Thought I'd introduce myself. My husband and I bought a good piece of property last Summer and suddenly decided we had plenty of room for a small farm. Getting plants started wasn't hard. I'm a pretty experienced gardener. Chickens are the first animals and that is brand new to us. Both of my Grandparents raised plenty of farm animals so I have been around them. I have helped and I have learned, but I have never done it on my own.
We finished building our coop and six Leghorns are waiting to go in. They're four weeks old and not full feathered yet, so I don't think they can go in yet. Research on that is divided. I thought it best to be on the safe side.
