    Hi all...
    I just moved my family up here to Alaska's Interior. and my wife's only (well, one of her only) conditions was that she could have chickens, since we moved to a very rural community. So I built her a coop, and she ordered a bunch of chicks to fill it with.
    I wish I'd have found this site before I started building, though! There's a lot of info I could have used. I think it turned out pretty good, considering it came out of my head. I guess you could say I 'freehanded' it. I'll post some pics when I get the chance. I need some expert advice on winterizing my flock.
    I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can from all the folks and resources here. I'm finding myself growing to like these critters, maybe even more than my wife does... [​IMG]
