    Hi all. I've been wanting to raise chickens for eggs for several years now, and have been to the site in the past. Well, I now have 5 chicks that are 2.5 weeks old, and should be building their coop this weekend! I'm excited to finally have chickens, and my 2 boys are enjoying them as well. (My 10 year old was reading to them last week). I'm excited to be a member here!
