This site gave us a few laughs along with needed information! You see, for 2 years my husband has been preparing me for backyard chickens. I wasn't very interested until he started building a chicken coop! It's half built and I'm anticipating its inhabitants. He has chosen a rooster, or a rooster has chosen him (long story), so we're working hard to make a cozy coop. We have a roosting area, nesting boxes, linoleum flooring (for easy cleaning I'm told), barn-red paint and a cattle-panel covered run. Anyway, Siri found this site for us. We wanted to know about storing eggs. Thank you, we learned a great deal! I'm looking forward to learning more.
