Hello, We are located in the center of Iowa. I (actually my teenaged daughter) have just acquired 3 chicks by way of rescue. They were purchased at an auction and then left behind because they changed their mind. So, now we are committed and jumping in with both feet, as we tend to do. We have had the little ones for a few days now and we are planning the coop. I have learned a lot from this site already and I am sure I will be seeking more knowledge as time goes by. Thanks in advance for being patient with me and my questions, as we start our journey towards fresh eggs.
