    Good evening, my name is Jessica. My dad had chickens when I was a kid. I remember helping take care of them. I have always wanted chickens. Recently I had a coop built its a 8x8 coop with a bigger run, not sure of the exact size of the run. I bought 20 RIR chicks on Halloween and then got 4 bovine red hens about 3 weeks ago. I have a few questions but I'll post them in another form since this is for introductions.
