    Hello All,

    I've been looking at your site for a couple of days now and it looks like you are a great bunch of people. We moved to Idaho a bit less than 6 years ago and 6 days ago we found ourselves purchasing 3 cute little fluffballs from the IFA store. They are Golden Sex Links, which we were told were the best type for us to have, as they are cold-hardy (they will certainly need to be come winter in these parts!) and lay lots of good eggs. This is our first adventure as chicken lords and I'm sure we will have some questions for the great forums here, most likely starting with some about coops and getting along with our very nearby subdivision neighbors.

    Well, gotta run now. Will check back later.

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    Good luck with the coop. You will want to get started on that immediately as chicks grow very fast.

    Hi and welcome to BYC :frow We're so happy you've decided to join us :ya

    Make sure you have a top on your brooder, they learn to fly rather quickly.
