    I'm a 30 year old female from far Northeastern MN. My boyfriend and I built a house on 5 acres of woodland and I'm very interested in raising chickens. I'm just lurking around the forums now, gathering information, and falling in love with Cochins in particular. I do want to raise chickens for meat, but after seeing the photos and hearing the stories of pet chickens, I know it will be a challenge. Anyway, I'll be around here often, even if I have nothing intelligent to post for awhile! I'm a little concerned about building a coop to keep out the cold MN winter weather while still allowing for ventilation...
    On a side note, my other obsession is Great Danes, and I have a 4 year old blue male. Here's a link to his website if any of you are interested in the furry, as well as the feathered!

    Welcome to BYC, from Cape Cod.

    PS: for good info on coops in cold weather areas, go to CityChook's personal page here. On that blue line on this page, look for "User List".
    Type in "CityChook" and click. Then scroll down to find the link to her page.

    She's a great person, very fun and informative.
