    Hey everyone,
    This year we finally decided to take the plunge and start our flock. I have 3 Amber Links and 3 ISA Browns that are about 2 weeks old and are in a brooder right now. I am also looking to get 3 Plymouth Rocks. We just went yesterday to got the wood to start our Chicken Coop. I think it is going to be an awesome family project that my husband and daughter will be helping to build. Anyway, I am located in Mineral VA which is just Northwest of Richmond. Glad to meet you all. I am sure I will have plenty of questions as I go along.[​IMG][/IMG]
