Hello everyone! I'm fairly new to this site but have been visiting daily since a couple of weeks ago. Friends who are also neighbors went on vacation & offered my children the chance to pick the eggs from their 6 hens while they were away. Since then, we have looked at coops, runs, laws & ordinances, breeds etc, everything we might need to know about should we decide to become chicken owners too! I think I'm becoming more comfortable with the idea (I'm the only hold-out in our family). In the meantime, I've just been reading about everyone else's stories & living vicariously through them. Thanks for sharing your stories!
