Welcome to Backyard chickens.   The Indiana chickeners  can certainly fill you in on what breeds do best  in the climate,  what predators to watch out for etc. Check out the coops section on BYC, and the predator threads.   Things go so much better when you are prepared and not just 'winging it.'

whoops, forgot to mention   the Learning Center is jam packed with information.  It can answer questions you don't even know you have yet.  No joke, it's the best place to start a poultry education.

Welcome to BYC, Bryson. Glad you decided to join our flock. X2 on drumstick diva; if you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

:welcome  Welcome, glad you have joined us.

 

Good luck with your planning.

 

In addition to the exploring the Learning Center and Coops section,  the advice I wish I had listened to is to build your coop and run larger than you think - it is always in the top 10 "what would you have done different" lists.  And from personal experience, so much easier to build before the flock moves in rather than adding on.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
