Hi, I'm Wanda500 and I just joined BYC. I have my coop half built....hope to finish it up tomorrow. Now all I have to do is get someone to move it into place. I am a disabled veteran and primarily want to raise chickens to control the abundance of ticks I have in my yard. My record summer I had 46 ticks, and I don't like it. I know absolutely nothing about chickens except the little I remember from my grandmothers farm. I'm happy to be here and look forward to learning. All comments, suggestions and advice will be greatly appreciated.
