Hey ya'll! I'm not only new to BYC, but I'm also a new back yard chicken owner. We have just about a quarter acre in the Puget Sound area of Washington State. I am very glad to have found this site as it is full of great information and helpful folks. I'm looking forward to further interaction. For now, I'm studying some of the coop designs posted here in hopes of finding something that will work just right for us. I'll post pics of the coop once it's built. Until then, here are the chicks I picked up from the post office this morning. Happy little peeps!
