    Hello everyone! My name is Sheri and my husband and I will be raising chickens for the first time this year. We are extremely excited and I have been doing my research for several months now. If anyone has any tips/tricks or ideas they'd like to share that would be wonderful! I would love to hear about your experiences. Thank you!!

    Thank you everyone!! We brought home 6 chicks over the weekend.They seem to be getting along very well and we are taking great pride in caring for them. I can't believe how fast they grow. Already we are planning a bigger brood!!
