    I just want to introduce myself because I just found this great place and am learning stuff already - and ya'll seem like a nice group of people! My husband and I recently bought 10 acres in the north Georgia mountains and are so excited to be able to escape suburbia for farm life - but it will be 3 years before we can move there full time... and we can't have chickens in our current neighborhood (boo on that) [​IMG] Knowing it's right around the corner is very exciting for us though. We want chickens first (as egglayers and friends [​IMG]) so I've been looking online trying to learn it all. [​IMG] Our farm already has a chicken coop that is in wonderful condition (wish I had a picture with me), but it's huge. I think I will post a question on the chicken coop board to get some input once I get a picture. In the meantime, hi everybody and I hope to get to know you better. I'm sure I'll be asking lots of questions as time goes by.

    Welcome to the family Avrilon! This is a great group of people that are extremely intelligent when it comes to our feathered friends. Don't ever feel like any question is a dumb one cause we've all asked it at one point or time. When you do get things up and running make sure you take lots of pics. Once again welcome!

    3 1/2 months ago I was the virgin, err, uh, newbie. I am now a certified chicken wrangler. Or is that certifiable? [​IMG]
