    Hello from Indiana! We haven't gotten our chicks yet but have been planning for a couple of months now. We have broken ground for the coop and hopefully will accomplish erecting it this week-end.[​IMG] At any rate I am graduating this Friday with an A.S. degree in accounting and with a 4.0 GPA. I am considering the chickens my reward:ya:woot:ya
    My DH told me years ago when we got married he'd like to have chickens someday, his family had them when he was growing up. Personally I've never had chickens, but I'm a downright country girl. My Mother loaned me a Mary Jane's Farm magazine several months ago and it had the cutest little chicken coop in it. I couldn't stop thinkin' about it. Needless to say we are getting in far deeper than that.We placed our order for 5 Ameracaunas, 5 Rhode Island Reds, 5 Black Astrolorpes, and 3 Silverlaced Wyandottes, along with 2 turkeys.
    We ordered so many taking in to consideration sickness, predators and meaness!!
    Glad to have found this forum we have learned alot already.

    You will love it here! [​IMG] Would love to see pictures of that coop when your done.

    also, I think it is neat that you got turkeys too. If you have an issue with hawks (as I do) I read on here that hawks will leave your chickens alone if you have a turkey! Have fun.
