    Hello - I am new here.
    Well... sort of.
    I've been reading for several months and soaking in all the knowledge on these message boards. But I figure it was about time that I make an introduction.

    My children are involved in 4-H and this is how I have become involved in chickens. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd fall head over heals for them. Who knew they had such personality?

    Anyways - we have been chickenless for about a year now and we're about to get 10 Rhode Island Reds that are 5 days old on Sunday and we are getting day old Bantams next week.

    Any adivce or tips you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I am really new to this and incredibly nervous that I'm doing everything the wrong way.

    I'm half way through building my temporary brooder (from a huge rubbermaid bucket). I'm anxiously waiting the arrival of our new fuzzy buddies!

    [​IMG] WELCOME from Michigan!

    My #1 suggestion is get super familiar with the search function above in the blue bar! It was SO helpful to me when I first joined, and is equally as helpful today!

    Enjoy your new fuzz-butts - and best of luck to you!

    Just give each chicken a kiss in the morning and at night and everything else will fall into place.
