checking in from Oregon

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Checking in from Oregon , making my first post here.

 

Wife and the girls (9yo and 14)  decided they want to try their hand with chickens so so googling led me here.

 

Figure I'd spend several hours reading up on some of the basics to get ready, things lined up and a coop of sorts.

 

Just happen to have an older,sad 8x10 shed that I was going to take down and rebuild as a shed but now thinking I'll convert as it stands to a coop ( will get a thread started on that in the future).

 

Wife and girls will be attending a little intro to chicken class at the local feed shop later this month also.

 

Thinking this might end up being fun.

 

Thanks

 

Chris

Hi, Chris, welcome to BYC, and good luck with the coop build and in establishing your new flock.  You are right, this can end up being a lot of fun.  It looks as if you are planning and preparing.  Click on 'The Learning Center' located at the top of the page and study the forums.  Question away, and you will be set to go.

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

Hi Chris, :welcome

 

Using your existing shed as a coop is a good way to go, sheds can make great coops. If you have any questions about it, you can ask here:

I think you're a good candidate for future chicken lover, lol. So many are surprised by how much personality chickens have (I know I was) and how interesting/fun they are to raise.

 

Good luck to you & your family on this adventure!
