    I started getting interested in raising a back yard flock a few months ago and discovered the wealth of information on the message boards here. I purchased a variety of 26 chickens from McMurray hatchery. I gave several away, but I kept 2 Black Stars, 4 Easter Eggers, 2 RIRs, and a Mystery Chicken, and I recently built a chicken tractor. My first chickens are about 3 months old.
    Those first chickens got me so hooked that I recently hatched my first batch of eggs, purchased from a guy on ebay. I attached photos on the hatching forum:
    As if I needed more chickens in my city backyard.

    Thanks for the help.

    Welcome! I'm new, too, and loving it. I only have two chickens myself, which turned out to be roosters, but I just can't bring myself to let them go. No eggs for me!

    The coop you built is inspiring, I love it! Did you post any instructions for it somewhere?
