Hi! New Member Intro

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So glad we found this website. We live in the country in cold Minnesota with 5 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 Guinea pigs and some fish. We are interested in getting some chickens to add to the mix. I was thinking for laying eggs but the man of the house said around 4 cool looking ones to have as pets. So here I am doing my research. My parents have chickens and every once in awhile they have problems with coons and skunks. I want to make sure that we have a safe coop that is cool enough in the summer and warm enough in the winter with the correct amount of space.

Welcome to Backyard chickens.   You can check out the coops section for different styles, sizes, reasons   some have step by step photos and descriptions.  Also visit the predator threads to  find ways to repel  them whenever possible.

 

I highly recommend you visit the Learning Center,  it will answer questions you don't even have yet.  Good luck to you .

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
