    Hello from Northern Indiana.

    Last Saturday I pulled into a local Farm Store looking for a pond heater. They had a Coop on display that cause a flash back to when my Grandmother kept chickens. Grandma kept a daily log book on how many eggs collected, how many sold how much the eggs sold for and her feed costs.

    So I went and check out the coop on display. I was rather impressed with the construction and the attention to details. Local Dealer/builder too!

    With 3 acres of woods and a perfect spot right close to the “shop” I started thinking why not?

    So I’ve joined this forum, watch a lot of Youtubes about chickens coops and runs. Now I’m reading the eBook “Chickens For Dummies”.

    Howdy!

    Quote:How soon? Figure I've got a lot of reading and asking to do first. Perhaps late spring of 2012? [​IMG]

    What kind? Strongly leaning to Buff Orpingtons. Decent egg layers, Eatable when they reach "retirement" age and can't fly too high (if I got my reading facts correct).

    You will love it. Aside from ravenous appetite for fresh eggs, remembering my grandma and her chickens is one of the main reasons I wanted chickens! I can't remember the exact thread but look up longest rooster crow on utube! Makes me laugh thinking about it.
