Hello to all from Michigan

I'm retired and woodworking has been my hobby for 40 years. When I saw a pic of a coop online, it looked like something fun to build but I never dreamed of raising chickens. Well, when I finished the coop, rather than selling it, I decided to get some birds. I purchased 1 Australorp, 2 Barred Rocks, 2 Americaunas & 1 Rhode Island Red. Geez...I haven't had so much fun in years. Why didn't someone warn me how addictive and entertaining these critters can be. I'm totally hooked and love it. Now, I find my neighbors dropping by to check out my new "pets." This site has provided invaluable information and I'm happy to be here.
Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan, glad you joined in

Hope you stop by the Michigan thread and say Hi, look in the Where am I - Where are You section of the Forum
Welcome to BYC
Well, that's one interesting way to get into chicken keeping!
Yep, I've sold a lot of my woodworking projects and that was the plan with the coop. I may put an ad up on Craigslist in the Spring for custom coops and see what happens.
