    My boyfriend and I just got twelve chicks about a month and a half ago. We've been building them [a ridiculously nice] coop because they're ready to go out now.
    My boyfriend had other chickens for a few years before these guys, and I grew up helping my grandparents with their chickens. So I'm not completely unfamiliar with chickens, but I have a lot to learn and am enjoying doing so![​IMG]
