    Hi! I am new to this, and to chickens. I live in Laurel and I just bought 5 chicks to put in my backyard. I went to the farm store to get bean seeds and my 3 year old thought the chickens were cute so we started up our little backyard farm.

    Right now they are in a dog kennel until we build them a coop.

    I think I have 2 buff orpingtons, a blue andulasian, a silver laced wyandotte, a black sex linked and black australorp.

    I have no idea if there is a county zoning issue, but I think free FRESH eggs will keep my neighbors happy.

    Any suggestions on building a coop and saving money while having ubber cool egg layers would be greatly appreciated.
