hello everyone, I am Gretchen and I have always wanted to raise chickens. Today after my daughter (20yrs) said she wanted to also we put in our order for our new flock. We will be getting 4 Production Reds this next week. We are researching on how to get a nice coop for them since we live at 7200ft and we have long winters. I think we are goingto go the converted dog house and a long outdoor run in the back yard. I need to keep them away from our two little lap dogs so will be working the next few months on their coop. Glad I found you all.
