Hi, I recently started my adventure in owning my first little family of chickens. My dad made a little coop for me this year and just recently gave me 6 cute hens and a handsome rooster. I have dug through your forums for months trying to get as much information as possible so I would be ready when the chickens arrived. I've had them for a few weeks now and can't wait to get out in the mornings to check on them and let them out of the coop. They should begin laying around Christmas and I can't wait. I look forward to being a new member of your group and all the new things yet to be learned.
