    hello. I just applied today for a building permit with our village. I can’t wait to start building our coop, and get some chickens. We plan on getting 3-4 hens.
    I don’t know what kinds yet. We live near Chicago, so a breed cold and hot ready. Lol.
    About me: I am a mom/ wife. I have 2 girls 10/12yrs old, and a son 2yrs. Our family also has 2 dogs and a parakeet and 2 cockatiels.
    I look forward to learning from everyone.
