    Hey first post. I've wanted chickens for awhile now. This blistering cold winter had given the worst case of cabin fever, and so I've decided to clear out my old shed, turn it into a coop, and get started. I'm hoping to have 4-6 hens by mid-late spring. I'll be all over the coop set up section for the time being. Thanks in advance for patience and for answers to all my questions. God bless.

    PS, I'm in SW Ohio (Clermont/ Warren/ Clinton county area). Just curious if there's any locals on here.

    Welcome to BYC! x2 on the Learning Center, and also you may want to post in your state's thread to connect with locals: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you they can point you in the right direction about which breeds do the best in your area and which predators you may need to be on the lookout for. Good luck to you!
