I know being from Arkansas I should know something about chickens, but I don't have a clue whatsoever. I live in the suburbs of North Little Rock and I am starting my first chicken family. Im going to get my barred rocks this afternoon (so excited). I am really looking forward to getting back in touch with my country roots and getting to know my chickens. I just spent the last 3 days (and 300 dollars) building a coop from scratch. Its 8x3 with a 2x3 coop. I hope my chickens will like it.
