    Greetings!
    I have fallen in love. I've wanted chickens since I was a little girl playing at my Papa's house. We moved to TN 10 years ago and bought 5 acres with the thought of getting horses one day. Well as most of you know work and life gets in the way and fast forward to today I am now the very proud owner of 4 beautiful girls now in my homemade brooder basking under the heat lamp. I've been following this site for weeks researching what breeds would be best for us so a big shout out to all who have contributed to our descision. I look forward to learning as much as I can from your experience.

    :welcome
    :yesss:We are glad you joined our flock.
    Jump right in and make yourself at home.
    What breeds did you decide on?
    Make sure you check your brooder's exact temperature...over heating chicks can cause a lot of problems.

    Hey!
    I set up the brooder last night when the girls came home....hovered over them like a new mother checking the temp and had to make a few adjustment but we are now hovering around 95 degrees.
    We have settled with the following breeds, 1 black australorp, 1 RIR, 1 golden comet & 1 barred rock. It's funny to watch them and already they have developed personalities. Thank you for the welcome!

    Watch out ,chicks are early to try their wings and fly out of the brooder. A wire top will be a great addition. :welcome
