Hi everyone. I'm active duty Air Force stationed in Northern CA, originally from South Carolina. My wife and I are thinking about building a small coop and keeping around 4 chickens. We want to keep chickens for the self-sufficiency aspect as well as a family togetherness activity, we have a 6 and 8 year old children, and a family dog. We are also going to be starting a garden for the same reasons. I'm glad this forum is here, I'll be bugging y'all alot in the coming weeks!
