From May 8, 2013 until now-brand new. I have learned oodles from this site and hope to be a forever "chicken cooper" I live in a suburban HOA. Really hope that in the future I can be an advocate for backyard chickens and help educate the city on the wonderful addition chickens can bring into a backyard setting. I started out wanting fresh eggs. I got that. However, while I love the eggs and the fact I can grow some of my families food, I love my hens as incredible pets. So happy with this gig!!
