    When I started my research for chicken raising, coops, breeds and all other important information I was sent to this site.
    My little girls will be here May 18. I'm excited, I've been waiting 32 years for chickens, I finally wore the husband down and have to say he has had fun building the Hen House.[​IMG]

    Thank you, getting excited and nervous. I take care of dairy cattle, lots of knowledge in that department, having to read and read for the chickens, no knowledge for the latter.

    Welcome! I'm new to chickens too, everyone here has been the best! I had plans to start off with 7 ( the 7 deadly chickens was going to be our theme) and somehow, that spiraled out of control and I have 15. It's sooooo much fun!
