    Hello,
    After a couple years of wanting, and months of researching coop designs, chick tips, etc... I finally jumped in and ordered 7 chicks with a Meyer meal maker, so I ended up with 8, 2-day old chicks. The past 4 weeks has been fun and busy. We are finishing up our coop/run build and should be able to move them out of their temp home in the next few weeks.
    Thanks for all of the tips, topics and questions already asked on this site - it has been extremely helpful!

    Hi! :frow. Welcome to BYC! How smart of you to do all your research first! Some (most?) of us jumped in with both feet and then figured all that coop and run stuff out after the fact.:lau
