Chicken newbie!

Hello fellow chicken lovers!
My name is Alexia. I live in the PNW, and I am brand new to owning chickens. We just got our chicks 2.5 weeks ago. I spent all my childhood telling friends that I wasn't a farm girl, and here I am now embracing the idea!
My husband has been wanting chickens for fresh eggs for a few years now, and I finally decided to give in and go for it. We got a Golden Sex-Linked, a Golden Wyandotte, and an Americauna. They are, indeed, adorable. So far, they live in a giant cardboard box in our garage. I found in my internet research into building our own chicken coop.
Besides chicken-raising, my family of 4 (we also have 2 young kids) enjoys photography, baking, cooking, wine, beer, hiking, bicycling, traveling, Lego-building, baby dolls, and dancing. We also have one elderly indoor kitty cat.
Looking forward to learning more from you all. Wish me luck building the perfect coop!

Build the coop bigger than you think you will need...We usually wind up with more chickens than we expect
