Hi all! New to backyard chickens... and a novice on the computer! Not sure if im even typing in the correct space... sorry ahead of time. Anyway, I am a critter lover from birth and have had many, many rescue animals and pets throughout life. Finally live in a location that permits me to keep some of my favorite creatures... chickens. My hunny just made me an awesome coop out of completely recycled material (except the roofing). I have 2 red chickens, to black and white "barred" i think... and 2 mixed colors. I am loving them! they haven't layed any eggs yet, but im hopeful. I am thrilled to have found such an informative website to help me properly BACKYARD CHICKEN!
