    I am a new chicken rancher as well...I've wanted to do this for a long time and finally have the opportunity. It's great so far! I have 4 girls - 3 Leghorns and 1 Americauna, they are about 12 weeks old. Building their coop this week (they've been living in a large dog crate). It's unbelievably fun to watch them, only a fellow chicken rancher would know!!

    I just got my first chicks this year also. 3 Americaunas, 2 Welsummers and a Black Star. They are about 3 weeks old and a hoot to watch! Their coop is almost done and I can't wait to let them out into it. They've spent a couple of days out in a "play pen" in it during the day and they act SO much different outside. More friendly and inquisitive. They were even taking dust baths already!
