Hello from Western North Carolina

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My Wife, Son, and myself have recently started keeping chickens.  My Wife didn't take long to turn into a "crazy chicken lady."  Our first 6 chickens has now turned into a 2 part 21 chicken flock.   The small coop I envisioned kept growing in size through the design phase and now resembles a small cottage instead of a chicken coop.  We've enjoyed the birds so far and are looking forward to some eggs later this summer.

Welcome to BYC :frow Oh I love it when chicken math strikes… I started with 4 hens and sort-of got a few broody hens and an incubator and a demand for eggs and ended up with over 100 chickens. Watch out ;) Welcome to the hobby!
