    We only have four hens (since we live on a 7000 sq ft lot) but we want to get into chicken "ranching". I didn't know that's what it was called. And, we're looking into building a house in Illinois. Do you know what kind of coop or out building we need to build to get into ranching in Illinois? What are the regulations?
