Hello All. Just joined the community and have absolutely no experience with chickens. I live on 3/4 of an acre in a country community. Several of my neighbors have horses, goats and several have chickens running around there yard. I have thought about it many times but now I'm getting more serious about it. Wanting to build a nice coop that accents my home and have some free range birds helping out with insect control and lawn care. I look forward to immersing myself in some info here before pulling the trigger. Maybe get a coop going through the fall and winter and starting with some chicks in the spring.
