Hi! I'm also a newbie to BYC, and I'm from Ann Arbor! Our chicken permit isn't "official" until tomorrow, but I've had my babies in a brooder in the basement for a week now (SO CUTE!). Your coop looks great!
I've been to your town a few times, very nice place. My oldest son went to grad school there and I always enjoyed visiting.
How nice you'll be able to have chickens there! What breed(s) do you have?
