Hello BYC community!
We are a growing family of 5 currently, with 1 boy and 2 girls. We wanted to get chickens because it seems very interesting to us, and we wanted our kids to have the experience. We are jumping in waist deep at this point. We currently have 13 chicks, in ages from 1 - 2 weeks, with 6 more coming this week!

Black Australorps
Golden laced Wyandottes
Silver laced Wyandottes
Rhode Island reds
New hampshire reds

We made a small brooder for them, which i see getting smaller everyday. We are in process of building a coop and run, which will be 8 x 12 gambrel, with a 20 x 36 run attached. I have the walls and trusses built, just finishing some touches before i raise the walls and get it assembled.

I plan to document my journey, as that has been very helpful from your BYC community.

Excited to be part of the BYC community!
Greetings from Kansas, Syber-Chicken, and
! Great to have you aboard! Those are some great breeds and they will be happy in the coop and run you are building. Good luck and enjoy!!!
Wow you did just jump right in with both feet! Nice to see another NY newbie on here! Good luck.
