Hello! We are new to having our own chickens, but my husband grew up with his grandparents chickens and worked on a farm in college, so he has some experience. I had some ducks growing up, but am already in love with my baby chicks! We have been working on the coop and run and getting it ready while the girls are growing in the brooder. We have loved everything on this site and all the feedback from everyone! It definitely helped me figure out what all I needed before we got the pullets and how to deal with everything from pasty butt to the pecking order! I have learned so much already and cannot wait to learn more!
