    Hi, guys! I'm newly joined (last night) as I needed some advice on a bird that wasn't doing so hot!

    I'm 26, live in the MN suburbs with my husband, 3 dogs, cat, 17 chickens(wyandottes, Americanas or Easter eggers(not sure?), speckled Sussex, 2 mix breeds that are a pretty grey color, 4 brahmas, and one spastic polish) and I also have a blue Swedish and black Swedish duck! We're getting baby goats sometime in the next week too!

    Im excited to have a new bird resource, most of my chickens are a year old, but my little brahmas are 8 weeks. I'm pretty inexperienced so I can't wait to see what you all are up to! My husband (a carpenter) built me a cool coop and I'm always looking for improvements!

    Are there any other MN chicken people out there???
