    Hi everyone!
    We are from Half Moon Bay, California and totally new to raising chickens.
    We are just in the planning stages now that we have finally moved-in to a home with a yard where we have total control and can design it however we like. We can't wait to get started, but figured we should do a substantial amount of research before pulling the trigger, building that coop and bringing home our new chicks from the pet and feed store down the road.

    Thank you in advance for all of your help and valuable information! We are stoked to be a part of this community.

    Cheers,
    Coastsidecoop
