Good Morning! My name is Jackie and I live in Brainerd MN. I am looking into getting about 3 chickens to have for eggs and pets. Right now I have tasked my husband with building a coop, from a design I found on this site (Thank you!) I am going to an auction Sat, and if not there, will soon start my search for 3 little hens. Being a newbie, I am hoping for a little older hens, like 4-6 months. Later on, I may try to raise little peeps. Baby steps! I have a feeling I will be on this Forum a lot, and also plan on buying some kind of a reference book. Thanks for reading!!
