    Hello
    My name is John and my wife is Ladawn.
    We are finally going to start raising chickens something we have wanted to do for 25 years now.
    We are finishing up our coop and run and hope to have our chickens soon.
    I decided to join this forum because so many questions we have looked up on the internet always seem to lead us here.
    Thanks to everyone who shares their knowledge here, I know it is helping us.

    John

    Thank you everyone for your kind words and support.

    Drumstick Diva We haven't completely decided on the breeds But we are leaning to Golden Laced Wyandotte, Buff Brahma, Buff Chantecler, Barred Plymouth Rock in no particular order.

    We have been so busy for the last couple of months building the coop and run we haven't done much more thinking about the breeds. We live about 40 minutes from Meyer Hatchery so we will probably choose from what they offer.

    We built for more but we will probably start with 6 to 10 birds.

    John
