    My Wife, Son, and myself have recently started keeping chickens. My Wife didn't take long to turn into a "crazy chicken lady." Our first 6 chickens has now turned into a 2 part 21 chicken flock. The small coop I envisioned kept growing in size through the design phase and now resembles a small cottage instead of a chicken coop. We've enjoyed the birds so far and are looking forward to some eggs later this summer.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Oh I love it when chicken math strikes… I started with 4 hens and sort-of got a few broody hens and an incubator and a demand for eggs and ended up with over 100 chickens. Watch out [​IMG] Welcome to the hobby!
