    After convincing our city council that having backyard chickens is an ok thing guess its time to build a coop and get some chicks(come spring)

    Raised meat birds years back but now it will be just 4-5 hens to lay some eggs(hopefully) and be a 'chore' to help 9yrold granddaughter some sort of responsibiity

    anyways just looking to learn more before venturing forth

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] If you want to build a coop I'd suggest you have a browse in the Coops section. There are some great designs there! You are not a complete novice, but I think you'll find the Learning Center helpful and informative. In the Breeds section you'll find more info on the different breeds and their characteristics. And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. We're here to help!

    Welcome to BYC, fellow Wisconsin-ite. We're waiting for our nearest city to become 'enlightened' to the value of chickens.

    Fortunately, we're out in the sticks and can play fowl as much as we want. Our 9 year old granddaughter keeps trying to get a pair of chickens at her home in town. As she tell it, her 'girls' at grandpa's would love a summer visit - even if she couldn't keep them there during school months. She is an eggs-pert in coop viewing and dreaming here on BYC.

    Glad to have you so close!

    Love, Smart Red
