    Hi everyone! :)

    I'm so excited! EEEEEEEK!

    My Dad and Mom are hauling back a chicken coop for my family and I in a week or so. It says it can fit up to 15 chickens but we're only getting 7 hens and a rooster so I think it'll work perfectly. My husband just has to build a run which I'm hoping will be at least 15x20.

    Here's a couple pics... it's from peavey mart.

    We aren't getting the chicken until May sometime, I'm also debating getting 3-4 chicks (as well as the mature birds) so my kids can watch them grow. Found some easy rubbermaid brooder ideas thanks to this site.

    I'm sure I'll be posting a lot as this is our first foray into having back yard chickens.

    Any advice is welcomed and appreciated!

    Thanks!
