My husband and I found BYC as we were contemplating how to build a coop for our hens (we didn't have yet). We purchased 5 acres in September and at that time I decided I wanted hens for eggs and entertainment. I was very excited and we began work on our coop 2 weeks ago. Many of the materials were "found" or given to us and saved from the furnace! I also got some hens that are going into their fourth laying season for $1 each. I love them. My 3 year old loves them, but currently we are housing them with my sister-in-law's hens.
I have a incubator full, my first time incubating eggs. I have taken two out and expect the first 9 to begin hatching any day now! (Wednesday is day 21)
