    Nice goals. The chickens are fun for the kids and produce lots of eggs. Our biggest issue is finding someone to feed/water them when we go out of town. Also we ended up building a full chain link enclosure because they will tear up a garden and also tend to be attacked by dogs, Hawks etc. Good luck!

      Thanks 🙂 Yeah, we’ve got a coop design already picked out, and I’ll add an enclosed run – either fixed position or a moveable “chicken tractor” to that. Probably will use hardware cloth for it. Our lot (and our city) aren’t conducive to letting them free range anyways.

      For feed/water, we’ve got neighbors and family who can help.
