Thanks everyone for the useful tips- I have learned alot just reading your posts. Did some work on the coop and pen this weekend. Got the post holes dug and posts in the ground for the pen and began working on the walls of the coop. Probably going to be getting the chicks this week sometime, or maybe this weekend.
BF- We have a place here in Missouri called Orscheln's and it's a farm and home store kinda like tractor supply- I like ours better though! The only tractor supply around is about 35 miles away. Orscheln's is 5 miles away!
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
