    Good Morning Everyone,
    I would like to introduce myself and my girls.
    My name is Lisa.
    I am new to raising backyard chickens and have a LOT to learn.
    I am currently in the middle of building a nice coop and have added a few interesting items to it, many more to come since I am of a curious nature and like to tinker with things.
    I currently have 4 Barred Rock hens.
    I live in Arkansas, I would say in a rural area, but 90% of Arkansas is rural. LOL
    So glad I found this site and I'm amazed at how many folks raise chickens.
    I look forward to all of the great learning I am about to get via this site!!

    For the first interesting thing about my new coop going up, I was scrounging around the old home place recently and came across a really nice double pained plate glass window. It is now the inside wall of my hen house. All of my friends call my coop the Arkansas Chicken Aquarium.
    Here's a quick peek.

    Cheers and happy Chickens to everyone.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Very nice coop!! Good luck with the rest of your build. Barred Rocks are a nice breed to keep. I have a few of them and they are great layers and quite friendly as well.

    Welcome to our flock!
