Hello all ! I am new to the forums, I just build my chicken coop on the weekend, I modified one of the designs I found on here and I will be posting that as soon as I get the pain and roof done ! I will be starting off with about 8 chickens. I plan on going with some sort of excellent layer like a Rhode Island and mixing them up with two Silkie (if I can find any in my area) About me - My wife and I have a small 10 Acre farm. I am a Scientist by day and a farmer by night. I love my tractor and I can't wait to start getting Farm fresh eggs !
