Here come the chickens

We decided to get a few chickens to supply us a few eggs.  We have thought about it for a few years but finally are becoming chicken owners.  The first order of business is to build a brooder for the young chicks.  Lucky for us we have an old rabbit hutch in the backyard that can easily be converter to a brooder.  All it took to convert the hutch was remove the legs, build a lid, and slap a little paint on it.  After installing a heat lamp it is ready for the chicks to arrive.
