    Hi my names Rachel and my family and I finally got out of our apartment and moved to a house in the country. We haven't even unpacked everything but I've got baby chicks from the feed store. They were practically giving them away. Then my grandmother calls with 6 grown laying hens.so we are in a hurry to get our coop set up before they arrive this weekend.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    That's a very quick introduction to the poultry hobby! I'd recommend checking out the Learning Center and reading up as much as you can. :)
