    Hi guys, Im new to the sight, and pretty new to the world of Chickens. My husband and I are hoping to add an "urban coop" to our backyard come spring.

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    - new to owning chickens, but both husband and I were around them a lot as kids

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    - None right now, hoping to get the coop done in the spring

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    - We are debating between quite a few...but our city only allows 3, so we must choose wisely. We will prob end up with three different breeds. Looking for good layers, cold hardy and friendly... I would like at least one that is color layer, and husband seems to have his heart set on a Rhode Island Red

    (4) How did you find out about
    - surfing the net looking for Chicken info!

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    - We have bulldogs that are a big part of our family, and we enjoy target shooting a ton.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    -Right now its just my husband (35) and myself (30), with our 3 bulldogs and a Boston Terrier. We are hoping to add a human baby to the mix soon.
