well I finally did it! after all these months of over thinking everything I finally decided to get day old BO's and 2 white crested polish from MPC. The coop is ready but we still have to finish the run but I am figuring we have plenty of time because they aren't even being shipped until around the 10th of Sept. and they will be in the brooder for the first few months or so. My 7yr old son is so VERY excited. We are setting up an old dog crate as the brooder and I think I will keep it in the garage..again over thinking this because I have 2 cats I have to keep away from them but worried it will be chilly at night. My one cat is known as the "terminator" and LOVES birds! So I have to be cautious. But all in all I am so very excited! I will post many pics and keep everyone updated!
