Hi Everyone, I cant tell you how happy i was to find BYC but am eggstatic to find you all here in Mass! I have learned SO much on this site and really appreciate it. Our 5 chicks are 2 weeks old...Barred Plymouth Rock, Ameraucana, NH Red, and 2 Light Brahmas. My husband got started right away on a coop and he is just about finished. He took suggestions about design from this site and watched lots of You Tube videos! So, i guess i would ask of the seasoned chicken owners.... What are some things you wished you would have known when you began raising chickens? Coop, care....anything! Thanks so much for sharing your experience!
