    Hello from South Carolina. I am a "hobby farmer" if that is the right term. I have a very large vegetable garden that sustains growth almost year round. My wife, two children, and myself enjoy planting, cultivating, harvesting, and selling our Certified SC Grown products!! We are in the process of selecting a coop design and will soon be acquiring our first chickens!! Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. Hello again and we look forward to being a part of the back yard chicken community!!

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our community.

    I suggest taking a look at the Learning Center, if you haven't already: Learning Center Articles It should have lots of information and answers to your questions. You may also want to look at the Coops section for coop designs: Chicken Coop Designs

    Good luck with your future chickens!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. The Learning Center (above) is a great place to start your chicken education. From there I suggest you head for "Raising Backyard Chickens," Glad you joined the flock [​IMG]
