Hello from Connecticut. Finally have chickens and no longer a lurker.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi...we've spent the past month learning how to use power tools and building our coop.  I've enjoyed lurking the forums and learning  from both the questions and answers on this site.  We finally received our pullets yesterday and are looking forward, a bit nervously, to watching them develop into our backyard flock.  The girls are an Easter Egger, a Black Australorp, and a production Rhode Island Red.

 

The coop.

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

Thank you for the compliment. My wife is the artist and build engineer. We've still two outer walls to paint and will enter the contest once that is done.
