We are new to raising chickens. We live in eastern Washington. My husband and father are busy building our coop. I have been studying this sight for awhile now, looking at the coops posted here and getting ideas for our coop. We are getting our chicks this week. I think I am more excited than the kids are! Would welcome any and all advice. We get cold winters and hot summers. We are wanting chickens for the eggs. I have ideas on breeds, but would love advice. Thanks!
