    Hello from Austin -

    I live in central Austin and there are a lot of 'city chicken' people around here. I've been on the BYC forum about a week. We have our first ever chicks, a total of 8, all from two local feed stores (originally from the Ideal hatchery). The first two are almost 4 weeks old I think - 2 Dominiques, Big Dot and Little Dot. The others are all about a week and a half old: 2 'ameraucanas' named Lucy & Ethel; 2 gold-laced wyandottes named Daisy and Buttercup; a Welsummer named Mildred Cubicle; and, a blue wyandotte, named Little Blue.

    They all seem to be thriving well. We're about 3/4 through the coop build, so they are all in brooder boxes in the guest bathroom where we can manage temperature and keep them away from the dogs.

    This is the coop progress. Tall side is the front - to the left wall will be nesting boxes with roosts along back and right side. The pop-up in the roof is for ventilation and will be able to hold a box fan.
