Hello, My name is Jim and my girlfriend and I recently got an urban chicken coop for our backyard, so I am on this forum to get some tip and read about everyone's experiences and hopefully I can gain some wisdom and provide a clean and healthy habitat for my birds. We live in Des Moines Iowa where we can have up to 50 chickens an acre, but since we have a city lot we can have a maximum of 25 chickens. For now though we have 4 hens, 2 Australorps and 2 Rhode Island Reds. I, and Jeniece, look forward to gaining some knowledge and making some friends. By for now, excited to be here.
