Hi Guys and Gals, My wife and I recently moved out onto 2 acres of beautiful flat land near Portland Or. and have been talking about getting some chickens. The property we moved onto already has a covered area, (10x20) that has been enclosed with chicken wire and used for homing pigeons. We are looking to make this into a nice coop for the 'girls'. I have been all over the web and found this to be one of the most friendly and informative sites out there. I am sure we will be here quite a bit asking all those noobie questions so please be gentle. Anyway, I wanted to introduce ourselves. We are Sharon and Dan and thanks for having us.
