I got tired of just lurking around..he he.. so here I am. I had been kicking around the idea of raising chickens for at least a yr now and since my son talked me into buying 3 Rhode island red chicks from rural king, I knew i had to get to learning. The chicks spent the first night in a pet carrier in his room. Then they went into a more spacious brooding area, and today they got an even roomier spot inside the shed. I look forward to meeting and learning from all the good peeps here.
