Hello from SW Louisiana. I've been wanting chickens for a few years now. I was determined to have a coop and run all ready before taking the plunge buuut. This past week my 9 year old nephew (who has had chickens for awhile) and my 3 children saw some at the local co-op and now we have 3 chicks. So the process for a coop has begun! We've had these chicks about a week and I can see how it can be addicting!
