Hi everyone.....My husband and I have recently decided to join the rest of you and start raising chickens. We're buying 4 barred Plymouth Rock hens today and should be receiving them next week sometime. We're very excited about the whole process. We have 2 children, daughter 12 and son 3, who are also very excited. Now the fun begins....getting set up for their arrival. We still need to build a coop and convert our old rabbit hutch into a brooder. Tick, Tock, LOL!
