    I just recently signed up to BYC after getting my first 6 chicks. Something I've learned already is to have the coop ready before getting the chickens. They grow quickly and I build slowly.

    Welcome to BYC, and good luck with your chicks. Yeah, that tupperware brooder is never big enough for very long.

    Welcome to BYC - and the obsession of chickens. Sounds like you are off to a great start having already learned a very important lesson regarding the difference between rate of growth and rate of construction, lol.
