Hello everyone! I am new here (although have been lurking for a while). We rescently moved to the Joplin, MO area and were lucky enough to find a house with acreage. We have wanted chickens for a long time (even when we lived in the city), and now we finally have them! We bought 10 pullets, a mix of breeds. They are now a little over a week old and starting to get their feathers. Their little tail feathers are SO cute! We are al ready madly in love with them. We converted a shed we had into a coop and attached a yard for them. I hope to let them free range some, but we have a large yard too. I look forward to getting to know all of you!
