    After many years of being born and raised in Chicago I moved to North Carolina and met my Husband. We have lived out in what I call the "Boonies" for many years and have decided to invest in a chicken coop! With my Mother-in-law, Husband, and 3 of our 4 kids at home economically it makes sense!

    The fun part is the closest I have come to a chicken is picking it up at the store! We are looking to begin with just layers fr now and gradually grow into layers and fryers. And advice, help, crtisism is so appreciated!!!!
