    Hello everyone,
    My 8 week old chicks (14 of them) have outgrown their cardboard brooder and want desperately to be in their new coop. My husband and I are more desperate than the chicks (although we aren't demonstrating it by eating our way through cardboard). The coop just needs a door and windows and we will be ready. I have 2 buff Orpingtons, 2 barred rocks, 2 Leghorns, 3 Americaunas, and 5 Wyandottes. I have long admired Backyard Chickens and am happy to be a member.

    Hello and welcome from OHIO!

    I know how you feel about wanting the chicks outside.......Every spring I feel the same way once they start getting bigger and the dust is everywhere!

    Take care,
