    Hello all from Buena Vista, Virginia. Got 19 chicks from Tractor Supply. Six each Amberlinks, Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rock, and one free hurt Cornish left for dead. All doing well 8 weeks old now out of garage in new coop I am building on now. Retired from lawenforcement after 36 years, married 35 years, blessed with two daughters and one granddaughter. Granddoughter rules house and I blame chickens on her but I sure have missed them. I had them 25 years ago and I had forgot the enjoyment they gave me. Anyway, I am waiting for rain to stop and dry up to continue work on coop.
