My name is Michelle (my grand kids call me "Mimi") and I am brand new here. My grandson Dylan actually asked me if we couldn't try raising chickens and really, how do you say 'no' to your grandchild?? Been reading for months now, thinking, planning,deciding but wow, it's a bit overwhelming! Since my husband and 3 sons are builders , I thought I would just order plans and presto-a chicken coop and run! Ha! There are so many to choose from, some sites "selling" plans seem a little shady...anyone know of a reputable site or book to purchase? I have my brooder ready to go and my chicks will arrive wk of April 30, so need to get started on the coop. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
