Hello, Just joined and looking forward to learning all that I can on raising chickens in the back forty. My wife and I live in Holland, MI. She has been thinking about getting a few chickens, and ran it by me to see what I thought. And as you know...a happy wife, a happy life So now, here I am. It wasn't to hard to convince me, as I kind of dug the idea also. I'm going to build her a small coop (4 to 6 chickens) and hopefully get some chickens in the next couple weeks for mainly egg laying and entertainment. We'd like to get a couple Road Island Reds and a couple Plymouth Rocks.
