    My Coop
    My name is Kristin and this is my first year with chickens and it is due in large part to BYC. My husband and I moved from Ca to Montana about 1 1/2 yrs ago and have been enjoying having space and getting back to nature. I thought chickens might be a fun addition but didn't know anything about them until looking into this site. I got 7 chicks in March and they are all doing really well and they are more fun than we could have imagined. Thank You for educating me and giving me the courage to do this. I added some pics to show the run, coop and some of the girls playing in the compost pile. [​IMG] The designs for the coop an run I complied from advice on this site.
