I have been lurking on the site for a little while and decided even though I'll not be getting into Chickens right away I should sign up and introduce myself. Myself and my darling girlfriend are currently in the market for a house with land or land to build on. The next purchase build after that will be a barn/coop. I am a computer programmer who grew up on a farm, was in 4-H, raised Chickens so I have a good idea of what I am in for. My Girlfriend grew up in a town, but in definitely getting her fair share of exposure to animals as a large animal vet. If everything went well, I'd be looking at getting chick or eggs for next spring. I am currently coming up with coop designs, and breeds of chickens that I'd like to have.
