Hello, BYC. My name is Mike. I have been married to my lovely bride for over 19 years. We have seven kids (yes, they are all ours). My bride decided she wanted chickens, so thats where I come in. I have been reading and google chickens every since. I stumbled across your website and absolutely love it. You all have created a great community. How ever, I believe that I may be in over my head. I don't know what type of chicken or how many to start with or how big to build our coop. We use between 5 or 6 dozen a month. The chickens need to be somewhat easy going because we have a troop of small kids. I would really appreciate any info to make our decision easier.
