Hi Everybody, I'm interested in raising a few chickens in our backyard. I raised chicks as a child and enjoyed the hobby, so why not relive the magic? The hitch is my wife is not a poultry lover. But she IS absolutely nuts about eggs. After making some tentative promises and concessions I have a green light. Now I don't want to screw it up. My plan is to get a henspa. I'm not handy, so building something is out. I like the henspa b/c of the low odor, low maintenance promises. I also like that when I get my day old chicks I can immediately put them in the henspa's converted attic. The chicks will never hit the garage floor in a make shift brooder and hence not funk up the laundry area. I also like the big feeder/waterer capacities, so if we go for a three day vacation the chickens should be well taken care of. The henspa is expensive and means that I'll have to cut back on other hobbies, but I don't want to cheap out and then have odor/mess troubles which will land both then chickens and myself on craigslist. Any thoughts?
