    Hello everyone...I am a total beginner at this. Decided I want to raise chickens for eggs so I am learning all I can before I take the plunge. I found this forum and think it sounds like it will be very helpful. I've got lots of scrap lumber to build a coop and am looking for "blueprints."

    Hello and :welcome

    Check out the "Coops" link at the top of the page, there are lots of good ideas here. Coop doesn't have to be very fancy. Best of luck!!

    Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and enjoy the site. :D

    [​IMG] from another Kansan. Come on over and join us on the Kansas thread. There are several others from NE Kansas. You can find the thread here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/248925/consolidated-kansas/12800#post_9087445

    Oh, and the Kansas people are AWESOME at giving coop building advice. I am currently in the middle of a new coop build and got some great tips and ideas from others on the thread.
