    My name is Amy and I live in the great state of Alaska. My husband was in the Coast Guard and just retired. We are both from Oklahoma originally and have lived all over the country.
    I have wanted chickens for years now but knowing that I would have to move every few years kept me from giving in. Now that we are in one spot to stay I finally said "This is the year!" We have 3 gold laced cochins (bantams) that we got off Craiglist. They had some issues with their feet but are recuperating fine now. We got 7 chicks earlier this week. 3 blue silkies, 3 bbs orpingtons and 1 black copper maran.
    This is my daugther with her gold laced bantam cochin Chicklet.
    Here is Chicklet again. (age a little over 3 months)
    Here are some of my chicks, 2 orpingtons, 3 silkies and one black copper maran. And just one of my 3 silkies in a basket.

    I bought the city biddy coop plans off ebay. While I like them and my coop is going well, there are a few errors in the plans. If you buy them be sure to email about any corrections before you start. It's a little bit small so I bought the plans for the doube wide city biddy. The plans for it are more up to date and have many more photos. I plan on building both and using the smaller one for my bantams.
    Here is the chicken coop door side and the girls trying out their nest boxes.
