We don't have any chickens yet, but my husband and sons are building a coop. We'd like Buff Orpingtons and Red Stars. We'll start with a half dozen; we can only have 10 because of zoning laws. My husband, 8 of our 9 children, and I live in Mesa. We garden, bake, homeschool, and enjoy discussing books and films. Thanks for this forum! It's already been quite educational and helpful!
