    Very new member raising two Barred Rocks and two Rhode Island Reds. My girls turn 8 weeks tomorrow, and they are happy little girls! They torment my three miniature poodles, and give my son and I hours of entertainment!

    Since transitioning them from the brooder box to their coop, I built a "flip-coop" that serves as a portable run. I live in a suburb and this is perfect for my back yard.

    I'm so glad to find this site - It's help me make a number of decisions before I purchased my "peeps" - I had originally planned to buy 4 month old pullets, but opted for peeps because I want them to used to being handled. So far, so good!

    x2 on the FL state thread, lots of helpful friendly members there (I moved from FL to WY earlier this year).

    Glad you're finding out how much fun chickens can be, we can always use another crazy chicken lady around!

    Wow! Most websites I've subscribed to seem to take weeks for even one person ti notice you've arrived! Thsnk you all for thw warm welcome and advice. I have contacted the Florida thread, and hope they get back to me soon.

    As for posting photos and videos, I will just as soon as I can figure out how to do it. I'm a pretty technilogiclt challenged 63 year old#
