    Hi I am new to the site and new to the whole chicken thing(well raising and egg laying)
    I've been eating both for 40 yrs.

    I have jumped in and have ordered 8 rhode island red hens on the way now. I think I have the right box,heat light, food etc. to get by the next few weeks.

    I have an old portable construction office I want to convert to the hen house. I have ZERO
    ideas on how! and slightly better than avg. carpentry skills.

    Anyway would like to say Hi and I hope I'm in the right area of the site.



    Chas
