Hi My husband and I just moved out to the country and have our own 5 acres (Hence Minnie Farmer). My first order of business is to get some chickens! Our mini farm is really more of a hobby for me. In additon to chickens, I will have an acre veggie garden to start with. I also care for horses, but they are not on our property. I am going to be building my own coop using recycled materials (pallets and dog kennel panels mostly!). Can't wait for spring and my first chicks!
