Jeremy and I have been talking about getting chickens for a couple months now. It probably won't happen till next spring, but we're planning to build the coop by the end of the summer. In preparation we took a class called Chickens 101 and then we went to a chicken coop open house yesterday. These guys are pretty well known in the chicken community in the Twin Cities. They have tons of chickens, ducks, geese, and a goat I think. We hung out in the coop for awhile checking out the birds and asking more questions about coop building. More on this in the future.
