Hello from NW Missouri! My husband, 2 year old daughter, and myself just got 7 new additions to our family-chickens! We got them from our local farm/supply store and have now had them for about a week. I have been visiting this site often looking at coop ideas, etc. and decided I might as well just join . My young family has recently made the move out of city limits and into the country! We are planting a big garden this spring and have decided to try and be a little more self-sufficient starting with growing a lot of our own food and having fresh eggs. Thats all for now!
