    Hi,
    My name is Jennifer, people call me Sharkie. I just ordered three female chicks, hatching on or about April 8th. I ordered Easter Eggers because I've had their eggs and LOVE them. I read up about their mild demeanor and tolerance for heat and cold. Sounds perfect. I've ordered a brooder kit, and a coop. The coop already arrived, I will probably put it together once the nasty weather stops. I live in the Grayson area of Georgia. My neighbors have free-range chickens and a rooster. I figure those will qualify as decoys/bait for predators. Hopefully mine will be safe!

    Hello, Sharkie, and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    You might want to do a bit of reading on pre-fab coops. They are usually not worth the box they are shipped in.
