Hellooooooo! We are starting our "backyard" flock and found this amazing site! We are currently researching chicken coop ideas for our climate and possible breeds (I am a research kind of gal ). We have over an acre of land and can have a max of 6 gals in our coop according to our hen ordinance. We have had family members raising chickens while living in CO and CA and we are ready to start our own chicken journey! I am so EXCITED!
