    Hello, I'm Mary and was surprised to get a gift card for some chickens for my birthday!

    I think it'll be kind of fun here in Michigan raising chickens. I'm looking to buy an Amish made coop and hope that you can help me along the way with questions I might have.

    Tomorrow we go to town to look into buying some chickens. Wish me and the husband well, won't you? Nice to be part of a knowledgeable group. Thank you for having me!
