    Gladwin, Mi
    Hi my name is Mari, and I have been thinking about raising hens for eggs. Well a couple days ago a friend asked my husband to help pick up a coop someone didn't want. Long story short we now have 2 hens and one rooster. We will be busy the next couple of days building a coop. And any info or resources would be a great help. As I will be buying two more chicks maybe 4 more. Have never raised chicks before. And I believe this group will be a great help.
    Thank you,
    Battjes6pack
