I got four six month old chickens and love them already. I have been wanting to raise chickens for eggs for a long time. When my wife didn't flinch this last time I talked to her i went ahead and built a coop. I had to hurry cause the chickens arrived a week early so be gentil on my design.. I got the wooden box from work and the roofing from the mother in law so I just had to buy 2x4's and chicken wire. It was fun to build. I got 4 eggs the next day. I have been averaging 4 a day. I love it.
