We are new to backyard chickens, but so far the experience has been wonderful. We have five, one year old Plymouth Rocks. The coop (8'x12' run with 4'x12' elevated coop) was designed to match our 1940s board and batten house. We believe strongly in local food sources and wanted to provide an example of this concept to our young children. What's more local than your own backyard?
