Hello, I plan on getting 15 Rhode Island Reds this spring. This website has been very informative over the past few months as I have been doing my research. I hope people can provide me with a few tips and tricks to starting off... I plan on constructing my coop next month, I am unsure of the size that may be needed for 15 birds (I have read varying sizes/SF per bird). Also, if anyone can recommend a hatchery or breeder (I live in Maryland) that would be helpful. I am new and just getting my feet wet so bare with me! Hopefully, I can be considered a value member of this forum in the future! Thanks!
