Hi all. My name is Jason. I had been considering raising chickens for a few years now. I just purchased my first "flock" consisting of rhode island reds, isa browns and a couple of silkies from my local TSC. The chicks are only a week or so old and really active. My daughters are all excited to help with raising them.... (though they have made it very clear that i am not allowed to eat them lol) i have found a lot of useful info here so far and will share my experience with our new hobby as things progress. First thing second though.. i have chicks, in a decent size create at the moment in a spare room in the house (im in ny so the weather is ify at the moment). now its time to start building a coop for them!
