    Hello, friends!

    I grew up with three hens and a rooster.

    Now, as an adult, I've convinced my husband that having chickens is a "good idea." We plan to stage an area in our yard this weekend - and build the coop ourselves.

    We're picking up 4 (or 6) chicks next week from the local Wagon Train Feed Store.

    I'm excited, anxious, and hoping not to screw up. Will be lurking on the forum all weekend. [​IMG]

    Thanks, all!!!

    First silly question (too shy to start a new thread) is -

    If they all eat the wild arugula out back... what are the chances of eggs tasting like arugula?!?!!? [​IMG]
