    Hi all!
    Great site, I am totally overwhelmed!
    I am new to living in the country, but have always wanted chickens. So..I am building a coop and hoping to get my chicks this spring! I never do anything without some background knowledge (okay, I manage a celtic music group from Scotland and had NO CLUE how to do that before I started), so this site is FANTASTIC!
    I look forward to learning more and can't thank everyone here enough![​IMG]

    I am thinking Barred Rock, Cochins and would like a few Buckeyes...I love silkies and frizzles...but the husband says "no". I tried [​IMG]

    The group is called Cantrip and have a website/myspace site. I don't know if it is cool...it is a ton of work, but their music is why I do it. I am hoping that the chickens will be relaxing as I need to reduce "stress"!​
