Grew up on a farm in Minnesota some 30 years ago. Swore off any farm animal for most of my adult life....but now as I am growing wiser and much more relaxed and comfortable with my Nonna status. Those chickens keep calling me! So after some gentle persuading from my husband I agreed to have a "small" chicken coop. Its still in the making he is adding a pitched roof and an area all around the actual coop for a run....Needless to say my little coop is looking more like the Chicken Hilton! We should be ready for the girls in a week or two!
