    Hi everyone! I found BYC while doing some research about breeds and coops. [​IMG] My husband is in the Army and we are PCSing to Texas next week. I've spent about 2 weeks designing my own coop. I've never had chickens before but I love the idea of going out in the morning to collect eggs for breakfast. Once the coop and run are finished, we are going to look at getting between 4 and 6 chickens to start out with. I want a wide range of the different color eggs so looking at different breeds. I have gone through about 7 different coop designs and still working. LOL I want it big enough so that we can expand to about 12 or 15 chickens when all said and done. [​IMG] Can't wait to get to Texas and get our coop built so that I can start looking at some chickies!!! LOL

    Chickens are so much fun to keep. More fun than I ever imagined. And it gets nothing but better with time! The chickens them selves develop individual personalities and many times a few of them get really attached and affectionate toward you. Well worth the work on the new coop AND the wait!

    Enjoy BYC!
