    Hello, I am from Maryland and I am building a coop for my kids. I have quite a few questions/problems specific to the Backyard Homestead design that I just purchased. Can someone please point me to the right forum to get some questions answered?

    Here are the answers to the template questions:

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

    I have raised chickens for years.


    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?

    None right now but that is why I purchased the plans for the Backyard Homestead design
    .

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    None at the time but I am planning on some red (Rhodes Island) layers and some meat birds to fill my minimum chick order.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?

    ChickenDIYGuides.com

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    The yard, the kid, the yard, the kids...

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

    I live on about 2 acres, have a cool dog , 2 kids, and a loving wife.

    Thank you,

    [​IMG] You have come to the right place. This site is full of wisdom, many seasoned chicken addicts and lots of newbies too. Plus, many threads dedicated to things not chicken. Enjoy and welcome.
