    Hi, were new here and wanted to stop by and say hello. My name is Myke and my wife Christy uses this account as well, we have 4 children 13, 11, 9 and 8 months

    Were from St. Louis Mo and have just got into the addiction that is chickens (and thanks to my father in law, 2 ducks)

    we started out 2 weeks ago with a simple 2 chicken idea and buit a 12 sqft coop and a 44 sqft run for them, now im at 36 sqft coop (partially inside my garden shed) and a 96 sqft run.

    We will post some pics as soon as I get the run area picture worthy. we have 2 Rhode Island reds, 1 Black Copper Maran, 1 Barred Rock and 2 Peking Ducks

    Thanks all, and thanks for reading.

    Thanks all, I also forgot to add that we are homeschoolers and if anyone knows of any good learning material on the raising of chickens we would be grateful.

    again, Thanks
