    Hi there everybody! I've posted a question a few days back on the coop forum and thought I should introduce myself. I live in Southern Illinois and me and my wife and two sons are starting our first flock. My coop is just about finished and I have a start on the fence. Lots of work, but I'm doing my best to build a coop that will outlast me.

    I have a brooder and incubator set up and ready to go, and now I'm just waiting on the 2 dozen buckeye eggs to arrive. I have some pics of the coop construction that I will post when I'm done and can put them in a series. Thanks so much for all the great info here on the site, what a resource! [​IMG]

    Welcome,

    Somewhere is an Illinois thread where you can join in.

    Are you really in Southern Illinois or just south of Chicago?
