Hello all! I'm completely new to keeping backyard chickens, as in I just decided last week that I'm going to build a coop and start raising chickens this summer. My city just started allowing residents to raise backyard chickens last year so I'm very excited. I've decided to build my own coop. I'm definitely willing to save up money and find as many free building materials as I can, but I'm on a tight budget. I'm only going to start with 2 girls so I won't need a big coop. Can anyone share start-up costs with me? If you could account for the initial costs for the hens themselves that would be great. Also, I'd like to explore building a portable coop. Thanks!
