    Hi all, new to the forum and to raising chickens. No birds as of yet, but a coop build is in progress. I am pretending the reason is my daughter's FFA project, but I am really looking forward to some fresh eggs ;)

    My only experience with chickens for the past 25 years has been running the neighbors' birds out of my yard as they uproot my plants and generally create a mess. That, and the guy across the road has a hundred or so roosters. I am guessing the noise from a few hens won't be a problem.

    Yes, I live in a very rural area. Chickens, horses, goats, sheep and cattle abound. And mosquitoes the size of a small child, LOL.

    Thank you, but it is Nor Cal (as in Northern California). I have never been to NC, but have heard it is very nice.
