    Brand new member here to the forum. Just stopping in to say Hi.

    I've raised birds of all sorts for the majority of my life. Just this spring, My two boys ( 8 and 5) and I decided that we wanted to have a flock of chickens. This will be the first flock I've had in many years. I'm currently building a 10x10 coop and will have two large runs for the birds. We have 28 total chicks......15 pullets of various breeds and 13 Bantams also varying in breed (and sex). I currently have the two groups separate in our basement in their own brooders. Hopefully, when the Bantams get a bit bigger, I can put them together without any issues. Hopefully this will turn into a great passion for my boys and I.
