    hello all

    I have been reading Joel Salatin and he has inspired me to get some chickens. I'll be picking up my chicks (about a month old) next Friday and need to get somewhere for them to live built and figure this all out. Thankfully I have a neighbour that will help me get it built.

    I grew up on a farm, but that is all faded in memory.. hopefully with your help I can resurrect my past knowledge and not mess things up too much.

    Looking forward to learning lots

    thank you all for the warm welcome. I have decided which coop to build and now need to get the stuff required. :)

    I'm very excited about this new endeavour and look forward to learning from you all.

    I am getting 3 light sussex hens and I think they will give me great pleasure and some eggs too. :)
