    Hi! After staring at a sweet chicken coop here on my farm for the last 10 years, I decided to actually raise some chickens this year. I am a complete rookie and am learning as I go. This site has been so helpful. I have three 4 month olds and six three month olds. A dog attack resulted in several losses and a broken heart. I'm determined for that not to happen again. I have an attached enclosed run with my coop, a separate chicken tractor, and I let the three older chicks free range when I'm watching. I know for sure that two of the three oldest are roosters. They're all a lot of fun so far.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I'm sorry to hear about your dog attack, how very sad for you. That's quite a time you have been looking at your coop before add any birds, it's great that you have decided to get started with your new venture now though. Be sure to ask any questions, everyone here to help along the way.

    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow
