    Hey everyone:)
    My husband built our daughter a nice chicken coop with 12 baby chips... I'm so excited that this site exists and I will need lots of help from everyone. I grew up in a big city and I have no idea what I'm doing. But we would do just about anything to put that smile on our children's faces.

    You might like to chat with members in your state, they can be a good resource for local events, finding a vet, weather-related issues, etc. Just type Louisiana in the search box and your state thread should pop up in the results.

    Have fun with the chicks!
