Hello! I'm new to BYC but I've raised chickens twice in the past. My family of 6 moved to a property with a few acres and are starting again with a new chicken flock. We've gotten baby chicks over the last several weeks and are working on getting them moved outside in the next couple of weeks. We are going to raise both layers and meat chickens. Today we got a portable coop built and put the bigger chicks outside in the grass for the first time for a few hours. I look forward to learning more on BYC.
