You are farther along then me. My wife finally agreed to let me have chickens but I have no idea where to start. I am going to start with 4 chickens myself but I am going to start with some around one year old. I can't risk having a rooster because technically I am not allowed to have chickens in my township, lol. I am trying to find a quiet, high egg laying breed. BTW are you using a plan for your coop or just making it up as you go along? I am in zone 6a so I probably need a good insulated coop.
Hi Rob, My husband found the DIY coop based on an Alaskan chicken coop, but we have fairly mild climate so I'm not sure to insulate. I'm not sure what breed yet, but many suggested Bantams and Red Sussex. has a lot of experience raising chickens and has videos you can watch too! You should check them out. I've learned a lot...but still have more to learn :)
