    Hello,

    I'm new to owning chickens. I picked up chicks last year, read many posts on this wonderful website, and my 4 laying hens are doing great. Of course, I don't have the slightest idea what breeds they are and will post pictures up so that you all can help us identify them. :)

    I'm in the process of converting our existing shed into a coop...so I've got some busy days ahead. I bought one of those pre-made coops online but I just think it's a bit crowded. My babies need more room to roam.

    The chickens really belong to my daughter. She takes care of them, feeds them, etc., and she mentioned that she would like to get some Amercuana hens, preferably already laying or about to. Anyone out there in the 50 mile radius that has some Amercuana's to sell?

    Thanks,
    Abby
