    Hello I'm Justin and I am just starting out! I got the coop done, fence up, and will be getting the laying hens on Saturday. I look forward to learning as much as possible from this site and gaining knowledge from you!

    I am a newbie too. Have fun reading and learning. Starting from scratch building a coop, runner and everything else is long, but the reward is unreal. Mine are 20 weeks old and starting to lay some small eggs. Keep readying and searching and asking, you will get you answers and enjoy the fun like I am.

    [​IMG][/IMG]Thanks all for the welcome! I am going to be getting 6 leghorn/sexlink hybrid and two white leghorns. I'll post some pictures of my setup and would appreciate any feedback.

    I have to put at least 2 more posts up and would like to make the run larger but for now I think the area to graze will be good.
