Hello fellow chicken lovers! I've been a member since 2015 but as luck would have it, we just adopted our chicks this week. We are the proud new parents of three Rhode Island Red, three Amberlink, two Cuckoo Maran, two Delaware, and two Buff Orpington. That's 12 chicks when we originally planned on starting with 6. But, well you know how it goes! Luckily my better half can read me pretty well and insisted on building a bigger coop than we thought we needed. So we have plenty of coop space and a large enclosure for them. I've been preparing for a long time for this and want to thank all of the members here who contribute so much knowledge, I have learned so much. I look forward to learning so much more and perhaps contributing whatever I learn too!
