Just popping in to introduce myself! I live in Southern Alberta, Canada. We are bee farmers, slowly growing in size each year, but my husband is more into that than I. I prefer "not bees". So I started reading up on raising chickens (a little more my speed). Now that I am a few books into it all, and as prepared as I can hope to be, I have my first 6 chicks, and daily entertainment. They are the sweetest little things, some with more attitude then others. I never would have thought they could be so darn sweet! I am now completing my research and gathering material to build our coop, which was a bit of a challenge, as I wanted to ensure it was warm enough for the frigid temps we have been experiencing (-20C to -25C). I have reviewed a lot of posts on here as well (thanks!) and hopefully will have a great looking coop in a week or 2! I am looking forward to getting to know more of you!
