    Hello everyone!

    My name is Christopher, I am still in the planning phase of getting my coop together. If finances work the way the family hopes, then we shall finish construction this summer and have the Hens laying (hopeful) by next winter.

    Any suggestion to help get me going is welcome!!

    Still havent decided on what birds to have yet, only thing I dont want are the RIR, had those when I was a kid and didnt like their attitude. Our backyard might also expand to include a couple goats within the next yr or so. Time will tell.

    Glad to be herre and lookin forward to picking the brains of so many people with more experience than myself.

    Welcome from Denver! I like my RIR, but also have a Dominique, Easter Egger, Welsummer, and Speckled Sussex - all of whom are a ton of fun and are cold hardy! Good luck finishing up your coop and getting your girls!
