    All the help, huh? well ... Be sure all coop windows are covered in hardware cloth. Critters can get in 1" holes, so the smaller the better.
    Don't eat the chocolate off the eggs. That isn't really chocolate.[​IMG]
    One nest box per 2-4 or 4-5 hens depending on who you ask. Don't ask the hens. They will demand use of your bed.
    Enjoy the chickens, and don't fret. ANY question you have can be typed in the search bar. Chances are it has already been asked, and the answer is there for you already.
    Type in Oklahoma, and you will find others in your area with chickens you can get together with.
