My wife and I have 4 kids and are starting a Chicken Coop. We are new to this whole thing but we are excited. I have raised rabbits in the past and enjoyed it. I built a 12'x12' run with a coop and picked up two Ameraucana pullets yesterday. I am picking up 4 other hen chicks later today. I am just trying to make them happy and eventually good egg producers. Learning to care for and raise animals teaches us all a whole bunch and we are looking forward to it. The kids are soooo excited. I appreciate everyone's knowledge in the forums.
