Greetings from the mid west! Some friends of ours have children who are in 4H and this year their daughter is doing chickens. Naturally we go down to Murdoch's with them to see the baby chicks and what do you know, I walk out of there with 6 baby chicks! My family couldn't be more excited about it. I am on the look out for lumber now to build them a great place to live in our back yard and this place is just FULL of great information. Certainly not new to forums as I have played online games for years now and have been a board admin for many as well. Great to be here and look forward to reading more info about my girls! Side note I already had to use the search feature as we are going to add more birds to the mix. Current birds are a week old and my in-laws would like to get some chicks as well so we are going to take care fo them alongside ours. man I love the internet. Here's a picture of my son with his girls! minus the other 3 we bought the next day.
