I am Jo Ellen and am just beginning to research growing chickens. I don't have any chickens and don't have a place to put them yet, but I have high hopes for this spring. I hope to begin an organic garden, 3 bee boxes, and chickens. So I've been taking some bee classes. I just need a home to take them to. Maybe in a couple months I will find something I like, but I need it to suit my garden, beez, and chickens, yes? So I'm researching all of these things that I might find a little place to put them. I would like colorful eggs for fun and regular eggs as well. I am thinking about growing chickens to eat. I've read and watched a couple videos about building a chicken coop and I think my son can do it for me.
