Hello, My husband says I jump head first. Our daughter (20) has the same trait as me. We are studying and learning as much as possible about chickens. The chicks are due to arrive around the 27th. We have a plan for the brooder, they will be living in our den. We have yet to build the coop, and I am rather stressed about this project. We plan on keeping 15 of our little ones, and hopefully selling the remaining. We have cats, dogs and horses... not to mention all the wildlife in our area. We have a good idea on what we want for a coop, but no real plan yet. Here's to our next adventure, we look forward to our new family members, and the fresh eggs later this year.
