    Hi y'all,

    I am brand new to raising chickens and I am looking forward to learning new info and sharing it with others. I have been reading the forum here for a couple of months and finally took the plunge. I currently do not have any chickens. I am in the process of building my coop and run. I will be solving the no chicken problem very soon! While I am waiting I am practicing my chicken math.

    Welcome to the forum. That's great that you have started on the coop and run. It can take quite a while to build them, especially in the heat this summer. Sounds like you are dreaming of all the wonderful breeds you could have. I think you will LOVE having chickens.

    I have been busy for the last couple weekends building a 3000 sqft cage for our garden. I think I will complete the cage in a couple more weekends and then.... I get to build my coop:D I am using a fast farmer kit as the base so it should move pretty fast.

    I do not envy your building the coop in this heat. That takes dedication. Welcome and good luck. This is a great site.
