Our city finally legalized hen keeping, and I am so very excited to join in on the fun. I've checked out a stack of books and poured over coop designs on backyardchickens.com, but nothing can match the knowledge that comes with experience. So I turn to you, dear readers. I know many of you are homesteaders and keeping chickens is old hat. I'd love to know your thoughts. Do you have favorite breeds? Is there a can't-live-without element of your coop? Any advice for mixing chicks and a preschooler? Can I really get my chicken to wear a knit hat?
Any and all advice welcome. Thanks in advance.
Here's to happy homesteading!
