So hello there! I don't have any chickens. I don't even have a coop. I do however, have an illness. At first my family and I were very concerned, but then I found this place and I realised, many many wonderful people have this illness and survive very well! For about two months I have eaten, slept and dreamed of chickens. I have ammassed hours and hours of research all of which just makes the itch even worse. I bought 530sq ft of plywood for $40 and some insulation that is now occupying the shed....I've drawn and re-drawn plans ( as I learn what my chicks will need )...it's all I can talk about. I really thought I was going daft, and then I found your forum....I am not alone I won't be building until next spring so I've got lots of time to learn!
