I'm a new chicken owner. I started off with pullets, purchased at the feed store. They are 8 weeks old now and in the coop. We love them, couldn't be happier. I have 2 light Brahmas, 1 golden sex-link and 1 New Hamshire Red. The ladies free range about 1 to 3 hours a day. We converted a small green house into a coop with a roll of harware wire and a yard of sand. The Girls seem to be very happy. I must say that this site has been a huge resource for me. Keep up the good work.
