    Greetings,

    We're new to this but are very excited to join BYC.

    We live in one of the historic neighborhoods of central Phoenix. As a direct result of the most recent "Urban Chicken Coop Tour," http://tourdecoops.org/ my wife and I have decided to become urban chicken farmers.

    Last weekend, I finished building the coop and the run. Now I hope to build the nesting boxes for our ten hens. We purchased the chicks just before Easter and we believe they'll be ready for egg-laying by the end of summer. Our flock consists of the following: one Leghorn, two Plymouth Rocks, three Buff Orpingtons and four Ameraucanas.

    We have two children and they are very much involved in this experience. Its been great to see their excitement, each morning and evening, as they check on their chicks.

    I look forward to learning from all of you on this forum, I've already benefitted greatly by the pictures of some of your coops and nesting boxes.
    I'll post my pics soon, I just need to learn where on this forum is the most appropriate place.

    Cabots,
    Phoenix, Ariz.
