Hi everyone! I started keeping chickens about 15 months ago, and I've been learning ever since. My hubby built me a chicken coop that I love, and I have 6 full grown egg layers; a blue red laced Wyandotte, a Jubilee Orpington, a Cinnamon Queen, a Wellsummer, a grey Easter Egger, and a Silver Laced Polish. I also have 6 juvenile Ameraucana chickens, one of which may be a dude, but I'm not sure yet. I live in Southwest Missouri on a little 10 acre hobby farm we bought a year ago. Up until a year and a half ago, we were suburbanites who decided we wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle. Now we're busier than ever with a small starter flock of hair sheep (Katahdins), two 9 week old calves that we got from a dairy farm when they were 2 days old and bottle fed them (just weaned them), and of course our chickens that more or less have free range privileges in the chicken yard, and now our back yard. They are all good girls and are well behaved, well, mostly. This website is what got us excited about getting and keeping chickens, so a big thank you! My coop is not extravagant, but it checks all the boxes. I'll post a picture soon.
