    Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. My family started at Easter with 5 chicks - 2 black stars, 2 buff orpingtons and 1 golden-laced wyandotte. We've quickly fallen in love with them and are loving this new hobby! Our chicken coop has been a major project, and today they'll finally be able to move in permanently and out of their coop in our kitchen. While it's been good for them to get to know us, it's time for them to move out!

    Looking forward to posting pics of our new coop, a larger and slightly modified version of the Wichita Cabin Coop - https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=66725-wichita-cabin-coop. I've been taking photos along the way and will be happy to share when it's finished.

    Welcome to BYC! I know what you mean about moving them outside. We were happy to reclaim the space when they were ready for the coop - and ours were only in the garage. [​IMG] Welcome aboard.
