    Hi everyone! I'm new to chickens and learning A LOT from this site. My family has been looking forward to raising and keeping chickens, and we have recently acquired 6 little peeps who are joining my family here in Ohio. They join me and my husband, and our 4 children. Our other family members include 2 dogs, 3 cats, and 3 horses :)
    I want to say a sincere Thank You to all who generously share their experience and expertise on this site. With the resources here, I was able to save a 3 week old very sick chick (coccidia) and protect the other 5 from illness. They are all doing great now! We're in the process of converting a teardrop camper into their coop- it's going to be really cute but functional and safe too.
