    Hi,

    I'm Kristin from FL. We have recently built a new home on a 4.5 acre piece of land. My children and I want to start keeping chickens. I am totally new and in the researching mode. DH is handy and will build me a coop ... I came here to glean info and hopefully get started on the right foot. Thankful to have found this site!
