My name is Chris and I am from Northwest Ohio just inside the state line from Indiana.
I have been playing with the idea of owning chickens for a couple years and have been obsessively collecting information for the past couple months. I am in the process of building my chicken coop from pallets (pictures coming soon) and I plan on raising buckeye chickens.
I will order 25 and try to keep about that many around. I want to be strictly Buckeye chickens but with all these people around me offering me FREE chickens.... I might have to take them up on it and have multiple chicken coops. (against my wife's wishes)
I am a wrestling coach and an accountant. I have two dogs with one a Soft Coated Weaten Terrier who will hopefully be the gardian of the chickens (he is still a pup). I accidently found BYC when I was looking for chicken coop plans and now I come here every other day as new questions arise. This will be more of a hobby than a means of supplamenting my family but I hope to provide eggs and meat for my family of three.
