Funny I did a search for this topic and found none. I just finished the blueprint for my coop and when I did, I realized that 6 months ago I had no idea how to keep, feed, raise, tend, nurse, house or protect a chicken. I got lucky back then and stumbled onto this site. In the last six months I feel as though I have read more instruction, wisdom, humor and just plain common sense than any encyclopedia on chickens could ever provide. So to all of you that make this forum (in my opinion) a fun and easy place to learn and laugh... THANK YOU.
