    I live in downtown Indy with my wife and three boys. We recently decided we'd like to try our hand at raising chickens. We hope our kids will learn more about the process of putting food on the table.
    Today I'm taking a drive to a nearby town to pick up some baby chicks. I'll build a chicken coop while they are still in the brooder. I've read through most of the chickens for dummies book, so hopefully we'll be able to handle it.
    Would love to hear from anyone else in the Indy area.

    Well, I went out for 6 chickens and came back with 9. My wife says I owe her...... I'm used to it.
