    Excited to network and add value to the conversation! I got hooked onthe idea of raising chicks for family eggs and with the boss'approval I bought 6 assorted hens. I built the brooder out of cardboard and sticks, I start the coop build tomorrow!

    [​IMG] Glad you joined! I hope your coop works out well! Chickens can be a little upkeep but they are great for eggs or pets. For best eggs you will probably like a Rhode Island Red or a Leghorn. For pets Cochins are great! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
