I am new to chickens and BYC. I have been wanting chickens for a while since we recently purchased a 10 acres house/pecan orchard. I have always wanted my own little 'farm' so I thought I would start small with some chickens. I found BYC while researching chicken coop designs. I used 'Miss-tis-coop' from this site and just finished it yesterday. I bought 6 pullocks and 1 leghorn recently and one of my friends who raises chickens is making some more for me. She has about 25 in her incubator. Here is a picture of my chickens (and 2 ducks) and their new coop. I seem to be like the rest of yall because I found a catalog with all kinds of different chickens and I am so excited to get some more. (my husband is trying to talk me into waiting a little bit) me.
