I have been reading through the site for a few months now, felt like I should finally say howdy! We have our coop and are workin on our run. The chicks will hopefully come shortly thereafter. I have been literally try to get started for three years! All the planets are aligning now though, and I am ready! We are going to start with a few Rhode Island Reds to get our feet wet. Thanks for all the information and pictures y'all have provided on this site!
