    and welcome to the irrational fears of a want-to-be chicken owner! I have gathererd all of the supplies, am designing the coop now, and hope to have it built by next weekend...... But all I have lined up is a full grown rooster (Ameraucana!), and possibly a few Cookoo Marans (chicks)..... But I really want some Wellsummers and Some Ameraucana Hens! I don't want to put any orders in in case there are coop issues or life issues (have a few of those), But, But, BUT! What if I get it all done an' I can't find chickens? [​IMG] For some strange reason this really worries me! I want everything to be perfect before I get the birds...Can any of you chicken folks out there put my fears to rest?

    BTW: I live in Rhode Island

    Build it and they will come, because you wont be able to help yourself once someone "helps" you get some....pretty soon you'll need to add on to the coop...
