    I've been silently stalking the forums and collecting valuable information over the past couple of weeks, so I figured it's time I introduce myself and become a more active member in the community. I am more than a little obsessed with my new tiny crew (six ISA Brown pullet chicks) and I want to make sure I am doing things the right way from the very start. We are currently in the construction process of our coop while the girls are doing their thing in the brooder. We are actually repurposing our children's old play house into what we hope will be a really awesome chicken coop. We are hoping to have everything finished in time so that they will be ready to move from brooder to coop on schedule. There is still so much for us to learn! I don't think we could do it without BYC. I'm so glad to have such a wonderful resource at my fingertips. I look forward to getting to know everyone and I hope that in the future I will be contributing some awesome chicken knowledge of my own.

    We have 4 ISA Browns and we just love them, they are the sweetest things! We've had them now for about a year and they are amazing egg layers. I hope all goes well with your chicks and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! (I also think that your coop sounds very cool!)

    I'm glad to hear that you are loving your ISA browns! I chose the breed because they seemed like they would be perfect for us as beginners. The chicks are very friendly and not at all afraid of us. They will hop right into my hand. I'm looking forward to watching them grow up.

    Do you happen to know how to edit posts? I posted from my phone and made a few errors in my intro post and its driving me crazy.

    I only know how to edit posts from the pc, don't have a cell phone. Maybe they aren't the same. On the computer version you will see a pencil icon below your post. If you click on that it will allow you to edit your post in any way you wish. When you are done hit submit and your revised copy will show up. Or if ever want to remove accidental double posts, you can just clear it out.

    Yes, I agree with drumstick diva, I am posting from my phone and I just saw the pencil icon under my post. If you click on it, you can edit your post. :)
