I've been on this Chicken Forum on and off for 12 days now day and night and have gleaned and absorbed so much info from many posts from numerous members on an assortment of topics. I just want to say to all of you THANK YOU for your KNOWLEDGE and LOVE you share for and about CHICKENS! My first baby chicks are about a week away from being delivered! I have built a brooder box and have purchased the things needed to care for them. I am making a nipple waterer tomorrow and have 2 8'x8' chicken runs that I purchased from Tractor Supply already delivered. My coop should be delivered in about 4 weeks. It is 8:48 p.m. and I am sitting on my covered deck in TN and it has been raining all day. I hope it stops raining tomorrow so I can get to work on building the foundation for my coop and runs. I think I already have some sort of addiction! Life is Good!
