    Hello All,
    My girlfriend and I are interested in starting to raise a few chickens for eggs and most likely as pets. We just got into a house and it happened to have a chicken coop in the backyard. I posted some pictures of the coop over in the Coops forum. It definitely needs some work to get it up and running again, so please if you have a minute check it out and offer whatever advice you can. I'll be doing a ton of research and probably asking tons of questions, so chances are pretty good that you'll see my name pop up a lot in the next several months. Anyway, thank you for reading and thanks in advance for any information!
