    I just found BYC last night and have already done quite a bit of reading SO MUCH great information here . I joined this AM [​IMG]

    I live in the Greenville Maine area.

    Right now my head is spinning a bit , with chicken and coop thoughts.

    I am a carpenter so of course I want to build a beautiful coop ! I am also a fishing guide in the summer and so I am about to work 7 days a week. Thus I think I might buy a small coop to get me started . I only need about 4 hens but want to build a coop Comfortable for 6 at least. Just to be on the safe side , maybe someone needs to find a chicken a good home or some scenario were my flock grows for a little while.

    I am going to try to be ready with at least a temporary coop by the end of May. I know I am starting late and I hope maybe I can find some mature hens . I did see 5 hens in Craigslist. I am sure I will have a Lot of questions.

    Eventually I will have some Pics to post of my journey.
