    Congratulations, it is going to be a very exciting time when they arrive, I hope you're getting all the things ready before they arrive, and take lots of pics, to post here, cos we all love seeing photos of baby chicks.

    I'm about 7 weeks out, the carpenter arrives next week to get the coop in! Guess that means I need to get off my lazy *** and go out there and move more stuff out of his way!
