Hi everyone! My name is Steve and I am a newbie to backyard chicken raising and I reside in the Niagara region, Ontario Canada. Have lurked the forum for a few weeks now and decided its time i make an account. I look forward to learning a lot of valuable information. Also, i must say thank you. My weeks of lurking provided me with a wealth of information to get me ready to receive my first 5 hens (arriving this friday). Fromcoop design/building, to basic requirements and everything in between. Thank you all and i look forward to picking all your brains to gather mlre information to ensure my small backyard flock stays happy and healthy.
