My name is Angie, I live in Arkansas. Last spring I decided to have some backyard chickens. I was a nurse and injured my back, so I thought this would be something to keep me occupied. I had tried painting, learning guitar and just writing. None of that seemed to keep my interest very long. I have 6 chickens currently. I built the coop from scrap wood. We had to buy the wire, I ran into spending more money than I thought, I do intend on doing upgrades to the coop this coming spring. Nice to be meeting more chicken lovers .I look forward to sharing information and pictures, and meeting new friends here. I will post more pics later. Thanks!
