    I have thought about keeping chickens for the last couple of years and I am just now
    trying to learn all I can about it. I am hoping I will get some good info on coops and breeds
    and keeping them healthy. I live in Maryland with my Husband 2 Rottweilers 2 Lhasa apso's and 27
    saltwater fish I keep Reef Tanks Seahorses, coral etc...[​IMG].
    nice to meet you all.

    [​IMG]. Welcome, I am not from Maryland, but look in coop section, lots of ideas with some materials list. Great to research before you get birds, love to say build first buy chicks second but even with lots of forethought I bought birds first then built. Would have been smarter to do opposite however, buying chicks was the drive to finally build the shed for them, so, good luck!
