New chicken owner here


Aug 8, 2016
Hi. My wife has been talking about getting chickens for years. At the end of May, she finally went to Wilco and bought 4 chicks: a Buff Orpington, Cuckoo Maran, New Jersey Giant and a mystery bird. Barred Rock, perhaps? Then the mad scramble of building our first chicken coop ensued. It's been a learning experience to say the least. It turned out pretty well considering our total lack of experience or knowledge.

We didn't fully realize how fast the chicks would grow. Thank goodness the coop was done before they outgrew their brooder!

I am pleased to learn as much as I can from this forum. Thank you for any help you can provide as we are learning all about our new chickens.
