Hi, I'm Mel... and am new to chickens. Our 9 chicks should be arriving on Cape Cod tomorrow or Wednesday (Salmon Favorelles, Red Star, and Barred Plymouth Rocks)! This is my first time raising/having chickens! Can't wait for eggs! I've been reading through the forum and pouring over coops on BYC for months now and decided I should probably join so I can post and ask questions as things pop up! This site has been great for getting info as we build our coop and brooder! Thanks!!! No immediate questions, but I'll be back!
