Hello everyone, We are new to the site and live in Minnesota. My wife has pushed me for a year now to BYC and I have finally agreed. We have 3 kids to help us in this journey. Main reasons are healthy eggs, helping teach responsibility to kids and of course happiness of sharing joying in pet companionship. Our intention is to have 3-4 chickens and no more than that. My biggest concern as this point is getting better ideas for coop design that works here in MN and don't kill my budget. I will probably jump over into coop design and start a new thread. I have sifted through a lot of it but hard to find exactly what application works for our desired number of birds and area/climate. Cheers!
