Hello...new member

Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I am new to this site and am enjoying it so far.  I am married and have 5 children.   My family and I just started raising chickens in the past two weeks.  I have 12 chickens...6 Isa Browns, 3 Buff Orpingtons, 3 Americaunas.  I am currently in the process of building a coop in the backyard.  My kids are excited for the chickens to get bigger and lay eggs and get the chicken in the coop.  Any suggestions of care would be greatly appreciated....Thanks!
