    Hello. This is my first post since registering last month. I have been trying to learn as much as I can. I don't have chickens yet but look forward to getting chicks and building a coop. There is so much information on this site it is almost overwhelming.

    [​IMG] from Kansas, boomer54. [​IMG] I like your approach of learning all you can and then taking the poultry plunge! [​IMG] I do thinnk, however, that while BYC is an excellent educational tool, experience is also a great teacher. After a month..go for it and enjoy! [​IMG]

    My best advice is to get the coop built FIRST!
    Our previous neighbor moved to a house where
    chickens had been raised, he was getting rid of
    all the old cages. We built the coop, but the cage
    frames and wire was a definite life saver for the baby
    chicks. We built a brooder to put inside the coop, then a
    bigger brooder as they grew, inside the coop. This kept
    the babies out of the garage, back porch or basement.
    I think it also let them know where home is. Build the
    coop first. They grow VERY fast!
