    Hello BYC,

    I do not have any chickens just yet, nor have I ever. I have wanted chickens for so long and I also work at an animal shelter, and with the calls we get from people needing to get rid of chickens, I think having a coop at the ready isn't a bad idea. I stumbled on the BYC site for coop ideas and have been addicted ever since.

    I plan on getting 6-8 hens, hopefully sometime very soon (orps, wyandottes, and ?). The coop is almost done! I will also be a foster for other homeless farm yard friends.

    My hobbies include gardening, beekeeping, and animal things.

    I have a very understanding husband and a diva hound dog.

    I look forward to getting to know you all!

    Though I'm a troll, I'm in the remote northeastern part of the state so you and I are in the same US congress district!

    There's a few other Yooper members but of course you're welcome to join the Michigan thread.
