Newbie Introduction. Hi all!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I got my first chickens from Tractor Supply March 20th. I've had a wild ride. My wife and I are looking to homestead, planting edible landscapes, and raising our own chickens for food and for eggs (predominantly for eggs, with a priority in tick eradication). I'm glad to be a part of this site, and looking forward to you constant guidance to get me over the hump of pure newbness and into the fun that is chicken rearing. The coop is a work in progress 4'x8'x4'. Still have to roof it and figure a few things out but it's plumbed and the feeders were built with ideas I found here and all over the web.

Nice build  my only suggestion would be - appears roost bar is narrow side up,    chickens prefer wide side up,  so they can lay their heads down on their feet (in winter this keeps them warmer.)

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
