    Hi! I am very new to chickens. I have 5 Plymouth Rocks. I had 6 but the dog got one. That was very hard lesson. They are 6 weeks old and getting so big. My husband of 20 years just built me a coop and a run. They are almost ready to go out. Husband wants to move them out now but I'm having separation anxiety.
    We have have 5 acres and wanted to use the land and decided to start with chickens. Found this site by way of Google. Wonderful site. So much info. Husband built a coop and run for them. The goal is to eventually let them free roam some. Gotta go search the forums for some answers.
    I love to flower and veg garden, four wheeling is another thing I enjoy as well. I do the books for a concrete company, have 2 old dogs and look forward to having some fresh eggs one day.

    [​IMG] Chickens are addictive so I hope your coops going to be big enough...[​IMG]
    I'd love to see some pics of your girls. I have 2 Plymouth Rock girls among my flock and they beat all the others for size and they aren't even laying yet! (But must be fairly close to it)
