    Hello, I have been reading all the articles on BYC to know how to care for chickens and finally decided to make a profile.

    Our chicks are about 4 weeks old and will soon move from their brooder to the coop I made. We just have a small flock, 4 chickens of different breeds:

    Golden Star
    Black Star
    Black Astralorp
    Americana

    I choose these breeds because I read they do well in colder weather, they are more docile, and are good layers. Although the Americana is mostly there for the different color egg, my kids love that!

    I made an ark style coop that is mobile, we plan on having them in the backyard and move them around the grass.

    I have enjoyed the articles on BYC and look forward to being part of the community!
