    Thank you for the warm welcome!

    I'm considering Barred Rock, Rhode Island Red, and/or Buff Orpington breeds - only 3 or 4. I'd like to start with brand new chicks so I can handle and have them become accostumed to handling. I have a couple friends that have chickens who absolutely love it. So, I'm hoping that soon I will be able to get chicks and enjoy chicken parenthood too:)

    Hubby is just now looking at plans for a coop. There are so many options to consider. It seems that the general consensus is that hand built is much sturdier than manufactured coops. I like the idea of a tractor coop so I can move it based upon season. Any thoughts?
