    Hi gang,

    Planning on getting into egg layers, I'm done buying junk eggs from the store I want to make my own. So here I am gathering intel. I really like Grungybones' coop.

    I live in the high desert of SoCal where our high temps will get up to 105 and lows in the high teens low twenty's. I like to start with 10 to 12 pullets.

    Hello hd_mech, how many more are on this list from the HD?
