New to the group!

  1. Greetings from Illinois! My husband and I just purchased a country home in Wisconsin where we plan on retiring. Retirement is about 4 years away and until then we plan on spending time up North getting everything put together for when we move up there. The home we purchased has a small chicken coop and we intend to have chickens when we move up North. I joined the group to gain knowledge and learn from everyone what I can do to make having chickens an enjoyable experience. My other half is in charge of designing and preparing the garden area and the chickens are my project. I would like to start with the coop that is there and build on it....

    Your retirement plans sound lovely. I hope you will have some pictures of your place in Wisconsin to share with us all.

    This forum is an amazing resource. You will learn lots and I have no doubt that you will find chickens a most rewarding and enjoyable addition to your country retirement!
