    Picked up some 8 pullets and couple of cockerels (I now know) in March. Used a bunch of coop ideas from here and other locations on the net. Saved a bit by building the frame and foundation of the coop with scrap pallet wood. Thanks all!

    If you would have told me even 5 years ago that I would become a chicken farmer, I would have laughed and thought you were crazy. Now I can't believe how much my children and I have enjoyed taking care of them and watching them grow. Great life experience!

    My kids and I started with answering a free rooster ad, just a few months ago and now have over 20 chickens of various ages with new ones hatching even as we speak. (Momma and babies are in a dog house in my downstairs bathroom.) Funny how quickly we got chicken obsessed. Love your coop and run. We are in the process of building new coops and runs to give our each or our mini flocks their own separate-but-equal secure living quarters.
