    Hello, I'm Diamond DeVille. My boyfriend and I just recently purchased a home in the cute little town of Steep Falls, Maine.
    One of the perks for me, is this beautiful Chicken coop in the fenced in front yard. I just spent this last weekend cleaning out all the old stuff from the previous owner, and powerwashing the coop so I can repaint it.

    It'll be my first time owning chickens, although I've been talking about it for years. I am very excited. I also need to learn where all of the local farm stores are in my area, and where to get my baby chicks next spring.

    I am excited to use BYC for all of my Chicken questions/answers.

    It looks like you have a lovely coop! We are happy to answer any questions you might have and to get the scoop on your local resources, you can head over to the Maine thread in the Where am I Where are you section, and you can chat there with others from Maine :)

    Nice to meet you Diamond, welcome to the Backyard chickens flock. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. The Learning Center is the best place to start your chicken education.

    Hi Diamond, [​IMG]

    How nice to already have the coop, that's a major expense for a lot of people. Thanks for joining us!

    Thank you. I'm wicked excited for next spring. But I still have a lot of research to do until then.

    [​IMG] Glad you have joined us. Congrats on your new home, how lucky to have the coop and fenced yard.

    Would love to see the coop after you paint and add your own touches to it.

    Good luck with the new adventure, you are in for an eggciting time.

    You are quite industrious, personally I would have held the camera and let him do the power washing [​IMG]
