    Good morning everyone! Our family just welcomed 7 chicks (4 Golden Comets and 3 Plymouths). We are completely new at this chicken thing and so far, BYC and the members have given great advice. I've found myself coming to this website so often that I just had to join!

    Thank you. Everything is a work in progress. The coop and run are almost complete. Unfortunately, our town does not allow free ranging but I'm sure our flock will enjoy the space we're building for them

    Thank you for that! I've been looking for state threads. (I'm better with animals than I am with computers)
