My husband an I are looking into possibly raising chickens. I had some when I was little so much of the coop construction and maintenance is unknown to me. Basically I just gathered eggs and watched (and got chased by) the chickens. I was hoping to get some advice on building an affordable coop and run with an extremely limited tool box and good breeds to have for eggs and possibly meat. My husband's idea is to have the chickens and my garden supplement groceries to loosen the monthly budget a bit. So any advice would be much appreciated.
