Hey Stephen here,I haven't had chickens for 40 years.I live within the city limits and just assumed no chicks.I checked with animal control and they said no problem as long  as they were hens.So I built a coop aprox.4x4x4,with a run 2x4x8.I am starting with two chicks and will pickup in two days.I went a little over budget around $150.00.I have yet to find out the breed.really looking forward to wednesday.
