Hi everyone! I finally joined BYC now that my birds have arrived and I'm finding that I spend a lot of time here I'm a first timer and already loving it. We have three chickens: Fifi (Barred Rock), Starlight (Light Brahma) and Angela Merkel (Buff Orpington). I built the coop/run myself and posted pics of the process here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/3sunset/sets/72157644779739249/. Although we are not officially a farm, the name is fueling the dream! Thanks for all the useful info you've posted.
