Hey everyone, I am a mother to 4 kids who love to eat eggs. so that got me thinking I should have some chickens! I am a little obsessive when I get involved in something so I thought I would go all out and hatch my own instead of starting with chicks. I am on my first batch, on day 15. I am very excited and already addicted! This site has been soo helpful! I have been stalking the forums for a little while and reading everything I possibly could to be prepared. Even used the coop design page to find a coop I liked and modified it a bit for my needs! I thought I would finally stop be a stalker and introduce myself!
