I'm just outside Clarkston. So I've been stalking the forums and reading everything I could. We purchased our house and I've dragged the husband unwillingly into being a chicken keeper. Chicken MATH on my first day. He thought 3 was a good number, I thought 10 was better. Good thing he was at work today, I came home with 6 silkies and 2 polish chicks. How do you get a former Navy builder interested in chickens? Get him looking at coops...and all the different idea everyone has. BINGO!
