    Hello to everyone. We are Deb and Rick and very new to this. So new in fact that we dont have a coop, equipment or even Chickens yet. My Husband and I figured we would learn as much as we can before we get the Girls. . He plans to build his own coop out of pallets and we have decided that ( White Wyandotte's ) would be best. So any way HELLO... :~}

    You might want to do some reading in our learning center for lots of tips and hints on raising your new flock. Check out the coop section as well. Lots of pallet coops there as well..

    Hi! Sounds like we are at the same stage! I think we're both making good moves by doing research so we (perhaps) don't make quite as many rookie mistakes.

    Hi, Deb and Rick, welcome to BYC. Study and plan first, then get your chickens! That's very intelligent on your part.
