    I am new to small coop chicken farming! My grandfather raised chickens on a commercial scale his entire adult life (a top producer for Sanderson Farms 95% of the time)! I hope to make my small coop run efficiently as my grandfathers but with more individuality. One of my pets as a child was a chicken that followed me everywhere! After college I worked for over a decade before I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Life after RA has been a struggle and I have gotten to a place where I will be able to handle my coop & days that I can not I have a good friend I can call on to help with my coop. And my small rabbit farm(10 bunnies).

    Thanks,

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    While it would be hard to match the efficiency of large operations, backyard farming provides so much more pleasure and healthy benifits. Hope you have a great time.
