I've wanted chickens for a long time but my man was not on board with the idea until recently. All of a sudden he announced that we were going to have chickens so hey, we're good to go! (Don't care how it happened, I'm just excited and oddly enough, so is he) We're now in the planning/gathering info stage and as soon as it stops snowing we're starting the coop. I love this site. Can't wait to learn and share- I'm a rain lovin' Oregonian transplanted into hot, dry Utah with a Utah native hubby, 4 kids, 12 grandkids and 2 big brown dogs. And don't get me wrong, I love the snow!
