We are a family of four living in Reno, NV. This is our first time owning chickens. We love feeding them snacks and watching them frantically try to keep up with eachother. They were born in May 2010. Eric and I built the chicken coop from scratch without formal plans, getting lots of ideas from other coops on backyard chickens. We are so thankful for this site. We love all of the info we have garnered from all of the generous and wise peeps.

3. They are the pet that gives back-eggs and fertilizer
1.They poop sooooo much!
2.They do not like to be taken away from the other chickens
