    Hi everyone!

    I'm new here and I can't wait to get my new chickens! We are planning on starting our coop in two weeks! I'm planning on 3 hens. 3 different colors of wyandottes. I'm trying to remember the questions I'm suppose to answer... We also have 3 cats. 2 tuxedos and an orange tabby, in addition to a fat little boston terrier rescue.


    I've never had chickens before, nor have I ever seen one in real life! I'm going to get my chickens as pullets as soon as the new coop is done!

    I have been googling like crazy all day looking for someone or somewhere local that has some chickens I can see. I want to see some in real life so bad and not just pictures!

    Welcome to the Chicken Addiction Unanimous club! Where in N. Fl are you? I'm in Jacksonville. There are all kinds of resources available locally. My advice to you is READ, READ, READ! The more you know before they arrive, the better your chances of success....and you'll spend less money if you know what you're doing. Go to the Index at the top of the page and find subjects to read that interest you. Ask questions when you get confused (that's what I STILL do! HA!) We all want you to have good experiences.
