I'm new to BYC, and I think I will enjoy this. I don't have any chickens yet, I'm still in the research process, but it won't take me long. The hardest part is figuring out what type of coop I want. My hubby is handy, but he has enough work to do. I 'm not entirely new to chickens, as I had Bantams in the past....I don't know what they were, just Bantams. Fun little girls, and I'm ready to start again. My biggest concern is providing a coop that keeps them safe as we have raccoons, skunks, snakes, hawks, cats, dogs, and opossums in our area. We do not live in an urban neighborhood, we are out in the country. Hello to all.
