Hi, I'm Tara and I live on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland. I am married and have three awesome children who I currently homeschool. We are brand new to raising chickens although we have been dreaming about it and researching it for a while! We just got our first batch of chicks, 6 production reds. We are in the process of building their outdoor home while they are currently in a brooder in my schoolroom (thankfully it's summer). I am loving BYC and all of the information that everyone here has to offer, it has been so helpful and everyone is so welcoming! I will be uploading some pics of my flock and the coop construction process, any tips or advice, send them my way!!
