    Hello I am new to chicken raising since May when I got my first two baby chicks at a feed store. I then bought 8 9 month old young hens two months ago. I am trying to raise eggs for my 3 families and am doing well so far. I get 9 eggs a day. My chicken coop is on our 150 year old homestead that my husbands great grandma and grandma used way back, We farm and I figure why not a chicken coop to raise some organic eggs. I love it! Lots of work, lots of questions and I am thrilled to have found a fun knowledgeable site such as BYC. My coop is not perfect at all and since I am an amateur I need all the help I can get. [​IMG]
