    Greetings all, new member Tom here. First post. First chickens. And today our first egg.
    I built a chicken tractor from old redwood and miscellaneous material found on the property where my wife and I are renting space for our 40 foot converted school bus home.
    I picked up 3 birds yesterday, all Specked Sussex. 2 layers and one pullet.. They are doing great and after work today I found out first egg! Yeah!

    I need to do some more work on the roof,but for now it is safe and secure. The coop is 7x4,and the plan is to let the ladies out after work for some outside time. I will be reading much here and will most likely have questions down the road. Have a great week!
