My wife, daughter, furry daughters and me are very excited to start our chickens this spring. We are neighbor of @armorfirelady and we are extremely in love with her chickens and their eggs. We feel horrible when we go to the store to buy eggs, they are just not the same! Our awesome neighbor hooked us up with an old coop from a coworker and we are rehabbing it for the spring!
Pic of the coop 2/7/2016. It feels looks like spring already! \o/
We are planning to build a nest box and to winterproof it. It had a metal roof, but I didn't really like how beaten up it was so we are replacing it. I will post more pics of the progress when I am back to working on it :).
We ordered our chickens this week from a local hatchery https://www.thepoultryhatchery.com/ and they will be picked up on March 19th.
We got a mix of breeds we would like to try. We ordered:
Rhode Island Red
I am excited to join this site. I have learned so much already and I am sure there are much more to learn.
