    Rick and I are new here to this message board and
    we are just getting into chickens for the first time. Our chicks are about 3 1/2 weeks old and are still in the brooder, but Rick has been working on our new coop. It's looking great!

    Great coop - and cute temporary pen. Your chicks are good looking too. You all will be very successful! Welcome to BYC.

    Today's my one-year anniversary of meeting my chicks for the first time - never touched a chicken before then, so was totally new to chickens. Now I wish I had more.

    Love your coop! And I'm going to have to show my DH that cage. That would be great. Your chicks are adorable.
