My family has made the decision to enter the world of chickens. My husband and I have 3 boys, 3 dogs, 3 turtles, a cat, and are hoping for 4 hens. We have a location to put a coop, but that is where the decisions have ceased... Do we buy or build a coop? Where do we get started pullets? I really don't want to deal with babies; I would like hens approaching laying but still young enough they can bond with the family. I keep looking into "stuff" and reading. I wish I could have everything done yesterday, but am trying not to break the bank. Having 3 kids and all the "life" that goes along with that I don't have a great amount of time to build anything very elaborate....heck, let's be honest, I have trouble with Legos...but am not against hiring someone to build. Any thoughts?
