    I am about to get my first set of chicks next week. I've tried to do a ton of research and figure out what I want and the best environment for them. I have a really nice area with what I hope is excellent predator protection for them once they're old enough to go outside and I'm about 95% set on a coop. If I would stop changing my mind on the coop . . . LOL

    Excited but nervous about starting.

    Looking forward to getting to know the rest of you!
