I have wanted to have chickens forever, as in over a decade. It has finally happen now that life is starting to slow down now that all my children are older and I have more time for my interests. I have a nice little set up for my hens, nearly a 16x16 enclosure. So far I am the only one who is really interested in caring for the hens but hope my family will soon join me in my interest. My girls are on the older side which I felt was the right choice since I am still learning the ropes and what I like and don't like about the coop, run and the enclosed area.
