Hello! I am looking forward to adding chickens to my home and farm this spring. I've searched and read and already have received good advice about coops, tractors and starting up. I am NO GOOD at construction so I've been looking at Chick-N-Barns and other prefab coops but am still undecided. I have indoor pet finches, aquatic frogs and fish, five lovely pet goats, two dogs, an ancient cat and a lovely Thoroughbred horse. I'm the type of person that will have chickens more as pets than as farm animals. I will enjoy them if they lay but I can't see myself culling the non-layers.... there will just be plenty of old chickens clucking about my backyard! heh heh I hope to learn a lot from all of you chicken experts.
