    Hello, I have never raised chickens but my wife has in the past. I live in Rhode Island on a 21 acre piece of land that has an old chicken coop, the run portion is wrecked but the coop looks to be in good shape. Tomorrow I will go get a closer look as the snow has finally melted enough for me to get close to it. Hopefully it can be salvaged.

    Welcome to the best resource for all things chicken! [​IMG]
    My husband has raised chickens before and I haven't but with 21 acres of land you have plenty of space and hopefully will get the chicken bug soon. I find I can literally spend hours on this site hopping around and reading how to do better for the girls so please ask any and all questions... someone will answer.
