    Hello from Lincolnton, NC. My family and I are new to the whole backyard chicken family. Our coop construction began yesterday. We are very excited. My husband and I have a 10 year old son and 3 year old daughter. This will definately be a "family affair". Hoping to have 5-6 layers and I'm looking at Speckled Sussex and Americaunas as my picks at this point. Based on my research they "should" get along together....I hope. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    WELCOME FROM TENNESSEE!
    I just began raising chickens a few months back! I started with 6 ameraucanas,
    but i ordered 6 wyandottes, and 6 plymouth rocks :) so my flock will triple in size by next week!
    I hope you enjoy your chickens as much as i enjoy mine!!!

    Welcome! I'm just starting out as well and also in NC. There is a forum for all NCer's that has been great for me! I have a two year old and she is in LOVE with our chicks! The kids will have a blast!
