I am so excited and have been looking forward to June 8 or 9 for two months! That is how long I gave my husband to build a coop for me. He is almost done and I will post photos of the frame later and could use any suggestions for improvement. Now it is just around the corner and I am making sure I have on hand most supplies I will need for babies. Since I don't think he will have the "brooder" area done in time. I am planning on using two plastic tubs to hold the chicks the first few weeks. That way I can keep them inside and at a constant temperature. It has been so hot down here in Georgia, I was kind of worried about keeping them outside with a heat lamp. I have or will have soon... Shreaded paper for bedding, chick food, feeders and waters, thermometer, 250W heat light bulbs, two non-clamp heat lamps, a couple of books on chickens, a bottle of electrolytes. What am I missing??? Thanks!
