    Within the last 6 weeks I purchased 8 chicks from my local farm store; 6 layers and 2 guineas. 1st time raising chickens for me. I have been repairing my coop and run which was left by the previous owner in my barn. I am so fascinated with all the wonderful ideas everyone has; just can't seem to get enough information. I research chicken care or coop and run improvements daily. Deanna
