    OK
    I am brand new to raising chickens and will be adopting chickens that need a new home as soon as I finish building their coop. We will be receiving 4 chickens and 2 ducks. I didn’t really know much about raising chickens before I found this site, but I have been doing a lot of research and reading and thought it would be a good day to introduce myself. I obviously still don’t know much about raising chickens as I don’t have any experience but everyone I have talked so far keeps telling me building the coop is the hardest part after that raising chickens is easy…
    We have a large household of 5 adults, 2 kids, and currently have 5 dogs, we all stay pretty busy between work schedules and day care schedules but we are all very excited about this fun and rewarding project.
