Hello- We have a small acreage in Coastal Oregon and are about to construct a coop for our first round of chicken keeping. Sure we will have some questions but so far so good. It will be the Garden Coop plan and perhaps adding a Chicken Moat to it as the colony expands. We're primarily interested in eggs as we do not generally eat meat. Can you eat them when/if they die of old age, though? Good for soup stock even?
