    Hello all! I've finally joined byc! For the past two weeks I've jammed my brain full of chicken knowledge and bought a couple books. One on hatching and brooding for raising chicks, and another for recipes for diversity in using eggs lol....can only eat scrambled eggs so much! This site has answered my questions and given us great ideas. At first, we only got 6 RIR at TSC. Then the next weekend we went back for more and they had new ones! I was so thrilled! The employee gal said the manager was mad the hatchery only sent red sex links and RIR so they got more! I grabbed five Ameraucana pullets and five black giant (straight run) babies. I realize they are Easter egger (I read all about that rift lol)...but we are so excited to raise chickens! The girls love them. I can already see the chicks personalities coming out. Today we are starting to build the run. We're converting a 8 x 10 shed that dh built into the coop. I got hardware cloth and my dh got nice beams from work. He can build anything!

    I need to figure out how to share pics on here. Atleast, I figured out how to put them on my profile lol. So, there's some there if anyone would like to see our new babies. I just wanted to introduce myself and I hope everyone has a nice weekend!
