I have been a visitor to the site for about a year now and we are finally getting serious about building our own coop and getting a handful of hens. We are currently taking care of our neighbors while they are out of town, which I think has helped my husband to want them as well! I have wanted chickens for a long as we used to have them when I was a kid. I am very thankful to everyone who posts their coops, ideas, suggestions, all the helpful information you find on here. Have a great day!!!
