    Thanks for a great community of information and help. I have been doing quite a bit of reading and talking to friends who have chickens. I don't have any chickens as of yet. I am planning on building a mobile coop over the fall and winter and starting with 6 or 7 RIR in the spring. I am hoping to learn enough to make it a fun experience for my son and wife. She grew up with chickens and I had ducks when growing up. I'm really enjoying the planning process. Thanks again:)
