    Hi! We just bought 6 day old chickens last week and this is all new to myself and my 4 children. They are doing a great job of taking care of them so far. They are so cute. I will be relying on this site for tips and I will ask questions as I think of them. Otherwise I am just happy to have a good resource. My husband is going to make a coop this weekend.
