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.
