    Hi All,

    I am from Alberta Canada, and am in the planning stages of a small coop for 25 chickens. After years of begging my husband has finally agreed to having laying chickens. My goal is to produce healthy organic eggs for our family and friends.

    I have a million questions about best coop design for my frigid climate, heat or not, best breeds for egg production etc, but for now, I am content to learn from the pros here at BYC!

    Cheers!
