I have been lurking in this forum since summer. Lots of great ideas and answers to questions I didn't even know I had Got my husband to build me a chicken coop while he was laid off and it looks GREAT ! Picked up 5 Rhode Island Red chicks and have them housed in a giant fish aquarium in the green house at the high school. Two trips a day to check on them and they seem happy as happy can be. They sure do eat a lot ! Great to be a part of this forum !
