Hello Back Yard Chicken folks I have taken the plunge and adopted 4 sweet chicks from a friend and we are in the middle of building a coop in the backyard and learning as we go! I am having so much fun with my girls (we hope they are all girls!!) so far and am loving watching all their little movements and personalities develop! I have already used this site pretty exclusively to learn all about raising chickens and I have to say, this seems to be the best site out there I have no idea what breed(s) our chicks are, as the people we got them from have a whole bunch of different types. They are all 4 pictured in my avatar if anyone wants to take a guess So glad to be here!
