    Hi everyone!

    I am a brand new chicken owner in rural Hutchinson, MN. We just bought a hobby farm, and I promptly ordered 15 chicks. They are due here late next week, and I am so excited.

    We ordered americanas, barred rocks, midnight majesty marans, and golden wynadottes.

    I have limited knowledge of raising chickens, as I did help my aunt with hers for a bit. I have always dreamed of having my own flock. I have spent a lot of time reading about chickens, and will more than likely be asking for help on here too. :)

    I look forward to meeting you all, and thank you for having me! :D

    We actually have a coop all set up and ready to go. That was the selling point of the property for me. ;) We have the brooding box set up with a heat lamp all ready to go too. Can you tell I am excited?
