weve been planning this for about 3 yrs now... my mum REALY wants a couple of chickens, checked ordinances and put lots of thought into time, breeds and maintenence and last year decided we were going to go for it... then like many other things in life things got too hectic and nothing moved forward. well mum brought it up a couple of weeks ago, that she wants her hens this year! so im currently looking up coop designs, trying to figure out the best way to do this. weve got the breeds picked out and a place to get them from, we'll be getting extras due to shipping of young chicks but they will end up rehomed... hopefully, the chicks will be comming home the end of march, and if the weather co-operates, coop will be built and chicks will be moved out to the coop at 4-6 weeks... they wont realy be MINE of course as when i move mum keeps them shes picked them out ect...this is her little project realy, but the planning stuff has fallen on me and im quite excited about it so does anyone else have hens?! we will only be having hens, were not alowed roosters in our zoning.
