    Hey guys I am brand now to backyard chickens!!!! I'm from a bigger city in KS and just bought my first 10 chicks they are about 3 weeks old now and I almost have my coop complete. They are in my basement in the brooder currently but can't wait to finish up my coop and see them outside. I got 4 Rhode island reds and 6 plymoth rocks.

    :welcome so glad you have joined us.

    Likely you already know, but when you do move them to the coop, you'll need to teach them to go in there to roost.....a small light you can cut off from outside works very well.

    And some day trips to their permanent home before the actual move really helps.
