Hello, my name is Wendy Dana and my husband, Kevin and my 12 year old daughter, Emily are starting our first chicken coop. We are in the process of building our coop for a trio of hens. We are really looking forward to having a backyard family. Any suggestions on raising hens for beginners would be greatly appreciated. We will post pictures soon of the progress of our coop. Our goal is to be complete with chickens by Easter. I am extremely grateful for this sight and all the help it has to offer. Thanks for including us.
