I've been reading the forum for a while now, and decided to sign up finally. I'm Rie, from Newnan/Sharpsburg Ga. My wife and I decided to make building a coop our summer project so we can have our own fresh eggs. I'm the nerdy researcher of the family so I've been reading everything I can find on building a coop, and raising chickens. I raised 6 chicks with my (or rather FOR my sister) 2 years in a row for her 4h poultry club and we were the only ones who never lost a chick. I was always so sad to see them go to the poultry show at the fair. So now it's time for my own. Anyway, glad to be a part of the community!
