    So excited to join this group. Lots to learn and do. We just brought home 5 new chicks yesterday! My husband helped a friend build a coop this weekend and they gave us our babies. They are already old pros with several breeds of chickens and other birds so we have a go to for info but this site will be very helpful. It will be a long time before we are eating our first eggs but I look forward to the journey and the Grandsons are going to flip!!!!
