    Hello to all you chicken people. My wife and I are strongly considering becoming chicken raisers. She is a retired HS english teacher and I am still working. Last year she had the idea to become bee keepers. So I did the work to learn what we needed to know to keep bees. Plus we both read a number of books and now we have 4 hives and love it. Now we are looking at raising some chickens. She has researched the breeds and placed her order with the FFA at the HS she used to teach at. We also fell in love with a coop design on this website and I am trying to get the plans (if they exist) for the coop. The coop was called the coop de ville and the husband and dog built the coop for the wife while she blogged. So I was just trying to get some help with the design of that cadillac of coops. Anybody out there know which one I'm referring to? Please help. We look forward to our online relationships with fellow chickeners.
