    Hey All, I am Tyler, just got myself registered to the forum [​IMG]

    I've been thinking about getting some chickens for a long time and finally decided that this year is going to be the year to do it.

    I just about have my coop and run finished, I'll probably post pictures soon, and I've got my chickens ordered, they ship on the 11th, I'm pretty darned excited. haha

    I got a rather large assortment, I kept telling myself to not get so many, but my mouse just kept clicking "One of these chickens, one of those" until I ended up with about 35 chickens. Many more than i thought I was going to get but It'll be fun! I look forward to sharing my expireince with all of you and hopefully learning a bit from you all as well!

    Hey ChickenGuy,
    Where did you order your chicks from? Sounds like a great assortment.
