    Hi, just joined up, 'cause we just got our first chickens! Guess we need more omelets on the weekend.

    I went to pick up 6 chickens yesterday, and walked out with 6 Golden Comets, and 2 Leghorns. I couldn't just leave the last two, they looked so lonely. Plus the guy basically paid me .48 cents to take 'em.

    We live in NW Ohio, and I'm sure my wife, and probably my sister-in-law is lurking around here somewhere. My job this weekend, rain or shine, though looks like rain, is to turn the Chicken coop that came with the house but has been a shed for quite some time, back into a chicken coop! So, I'll probably be hanging around that section for awhile.

    Well, I'm at work, so I have to "Pretend" to be working! Really though, who works on Fridays? That's crazy!

    ...and I'm so glad this place has tapatalk installed!


    The cats trying to figure out how to get their dinner!

    Welcome to the site! They have a lot of neat coop ideas. Are the chicks under a heat lamp? Just wondering if they are under the lamp or just away from the cats! LOL Cats will be entertained for a few days.

    They're under a heat lamp, and away from the cats. They're actually in our laundry room, which is the warmest place in the house, plus the cats can't get in there unsupervised, as the cat on the left has discovered he can stick his paw through the chicken wire.
