    This is my first experience with chickens. I currently have 11 chicks that are 5 weeks old. They are still in the basement at this point, but plan on converting a 10x12 shed this weekend and of course must build the run. I'd like to let them free range some, but I don't trust the cats! I plan to just have them for eggs and enjoyment.
    I also have a husband, 2 grown children, 6 grandkids, 24 donkeys, 4 Scottish Highland cows, 2 dogs, and 3 barn cats.
    This site has been extremely helpful as I researched chickens before deciding to get them. If I had known chickens were so comical and entertaining, I would have gotten them years ago![​IMG]
