Hello everyone, I'm new here, and wanted to say hi. The flock I've got now is my first attempt at raising chickens. I've got 3 silver laced wyandotte and 3 gold laced, 2 barred rocks a well I'm not sure what she is, but she has feathery feet and is grey with black speckling, and kind of a mutt rooster. Everything going good so far, birds have started laying and everyone appears happy. I will say this though, I'm an HVAC technician by trade and I find my self sitting at night trying to come up with more ways to over engineer the coop with spare parts I've gathered from work. Pleasure meeting all of you and I look forward to learning more about raising my birds and helping where I can. Here is a pic of my room, I think he is pretty cool looking.
