  1. Hi everyone,
    We're sooo excited to have found this forum [​IMG] !!! This is our first time raising chicks - we know absolutely nothing about chicken raising but we're very eager to learn. We brought home six Red Sexlinks (Rhode Island Red/Delaware) last month and just love them lots!!! Right now they are in a big cardboard box in our kitchen and its definately time for them to move to into a coop that we're building this weekend (hopefully the weather will cooperate). Be posting some pictures as soon as I figure out how to make that happen.

  2. Congrats, good luck and build the coop 2x the size you have origionally planned because you are gonna want more and more chicks. Resistance is futile. [​IMG]
