Hello All! My wife and I are new to the chicken rearing game and are here to learn from the experts. My wife grew up with horses and farm settings so we are not complete strangers to the lifestyle but are in need of some good resources and advice. We are looking to build our first coop and house 4-6 hens. We live in Northern California in an urban/suburban setting on 0.5 acre. We have a 4 year old son and 6 month old baby daughter as well a dog and cat. I look forward to sleepless nights reading the forum section and trying to retain as much chicken wisdom as possible!
