    Hi, just popping in to make a quick introduction.

    I finally convinced my husband to move out to the country, so we are now the proud (and shellshocked) owners of an old farm and 20 acres just outside Madison, WI.

    We have no big plans, but I would like to get a flock of chickens going this summer, probably using part of one of the existing barns for a coop. I'm hoping I can get some good feedback on coop conversion and run building to start with here, and branch out from there!

    There's some great info here I'm just beginning to digest, can't wait to get further in!

    Here's a quick pic of the new place!

    Welcome,
    Y'all will love country life and I hope all goes well with the coop conversion. I am currently doing one myself in my old barn.
