I have contemplated getting chickens and have never raised any. I have a covered area 14 x 14 where I will build nesting boxes and a roosting area. I ran my plumbing so I have a faucet just outside the coop. The coop is protected on two sides. I have a huge area they can roam in but worry about predators. I have a friend who raises laying hens but I do not know if that is the way to go. He will give me as many as I want. There are just two of us. Any suggestions will be deeply appreciated.
