    Hi All -

    My name is Erin and I am 27, new to BYC and recently moved from Saint John, New Brunswick to Calgary (well, Airdrie), Alberta. Fell in love with backyard chickens this summer when a close friend built her very first coop and brought in her chicks. Have been researching coop designs for a while now and am in the process of making plans for my very own when we find a property here. In a few years I will probably move back to the east coast of Canada, bringing my chickens with me.

    Looking forward to checking out all the coop builds, meeting friends, researching potential breeds and learning all I can!
