Hello all! Great to be here. I've been snooping for the past week or two and decided its just best to join. I'm new to the chicken raising community. When i was younger my father raised turkeys. Now I'd like to raise chickens. I think it will be a great experience for us. I live in a small town, Perham, MN. We have a household of 5 consisting of a 7, 5, and three yr old, including my fiancé and myself. We're trying to make our grocery bill lower including planting a garden and hopefully next spring raising 2 to 3 chickens. I have construction background and my fiance is great as a handy man/lady so building the coop should be a fun experience. Anyways I look forward to talking with most of you and learning as much as I can.
