My name is Heather Hall and my husband, Mike, and I are newbies to BackYard Chickens and newbies to raising chickens. We recently purchased 8 chicks. We have a variety of chicks. 3 ISA Browns, 2 Golden Laced Wyandotte, 1 Leghorn, 1 Buff Orpington, 1 Astralorp. We are currently in the process of building our first coop. We wanted to start small and learn as we grow. Our daughter, Dallas, will be 3 in July and we would like to get her active in 4-H. Our son, Dillon will be a year old in April. We are initially starting with chickens for eggs and may venture into meat the more we get emersed with our flock. We are looking forward to building relationships with others as we begin this new exciting adventure!
