My husband and I are currently fixing up an old shed out back for the purpose of keeping laying hens. My mother-in-law has kept chickens nearly her entire life, so she'll be helping us out ALOT. I also have a 9 year old daughter who will be helping me take care of these "pets", so if anyone can recommend docile breeds, that would be great!
We haven't gotten any chicks, yet, but we're hoping to soon. The coop should be finished (at most) in another month. We just like getting the run finished and fabricating another door (the old one was just cheap plywood and was curled up on the bottom and rotting).
Super excited about having chickens and being part of this group!!
