Hi all! I've been coveting my chicken owning friends for years now, and we've finally bought a home with a big enough yard that my husband gave me the green light! We homeschool and are planning to make a fun project out of it. I've been researching coop designs and scouring craigslist for some chicks to call our own. Just had to join here to talk chickens, as my husband now thinks I'm crazy because it's all I talk about these days (and even dream about in my sleep, lol). So just saying and hope to be a regular soon.
