    First time chicken owners. Have been researching by reading online to gain some background knowledge but was still hesitant to take the plunge. My wife noticed a coop and run for sale on an online garage sale post and we decided to go for it yesterday. I purchased four chicks at the feed store shortly after that. We have two Ameraucanas one a darker and the other lighter, along with two Brown Sex Link chicks. We are looking forward to experiencing the entire process with our young grandchildren. I am counting on the BYC to be agree at resource for information to help us navigate this adventure. Looking forward to taking advantage of all the knowledge and experience of this group. Thanks in advance.
