    Hi, my name is Melissa and today (3/24/13) I purchased my first chicks! I purchased 4 Tetra Tint pullets and 2 Assorted Reds (I think they're Rhode Island Reds) from Tractor Supply. It seems like they're doing pretty well so far. I was originally going to get Ameraucaunas and a few Silkies but was tired of waiting for them to show up in the store [​IMG]. We already have a HUGE chicken coop built on our property and I am looking forward to it getting some use! The coop is built into a shed with a cozy little viewing room that looks into the hen house. Through a little door the hens can go out into a huge screened in area outfitted with roosting poles and gravel. Here's some quick info about me...
    -I am a 1st time chicken owner!
    -I am a vegetarian so eggs are a huge portion of my diet!
    -I am leaving to study abroad in Germany this September!
    -My username, ineinkleinesei(in ein kleines Ei), means "In a little egg" in German.
    -I am the proud owner of 4 Tetra Tints and 2 (I assume) Rhode Island Reds!



    Thank you so much for welcoming me into your community of chicken lovers! I hope to post pictures soon!
