Another North Carolinian (Raleigh) joining the chicken coop lifestyle. I've started a post in the design and construction section to chart my progress on the chicken coop. I took my sons through Hen-Side the Beltline Tour D'Coop (http://hensidethebeltline.blogspot.com/) this year after trying to make the tour for the last three. My oldest is old enough to be excited and said he wanted chickens. We're excited about it and look forward to contributing to the forum.
