    Hello BYC and thanks in advance for all your knowledge. I'm getting my first chicks this year and can't wait to start my journey. My 8 year old daughter and I are going to have Light Brahma's and she is going to show one in 4-H. I have to get started building a coop but I'm sure I'll be checking in here very soon.
