    Hi all,

    I'm a SAHM of four and we just bought our first home on a quarter acre. So happy to get away from the apartment life and use our property for gardening, composting and, of course, chickens.

    The kids and hubby are all on board and we are so ready for this experience! Well hopefully get our chicks in February from the Garden Sphere in Tacoma WA. In the meantime, preparation! From building our own coop to research to compost beginnings.

    I openly welcome advice from anyone - we are brand spanking new to this!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for children, particularly with calm and gentle breeds. My granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) loves our chickens. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of chicks are you getting?
