Hello fellow Illinoians, We are starting a new adventure into the wonderful world of Back Yard Chickens. We are currently in the planning stages. From the research I have done on this site here is what I have come up with. Looking to get between 3-5 hens(roosters not allowed). Not sure on breed yet any recommendations would be great Coop size we are thinking 4x6 raised and a covered run that would be 4x12 That's about where we are for now any advice/recommendations would be great. Looking forward to interacting with the many great people on this site.
