Karrie, DH seriously wants to keep a couple of chickens. Is it worth the work? How much time does it seriously take you? We have a small backyard...I'm not up for a bunch more work given we have a house full of pets and kids AND a community garden plot. So, let me in on the scoop okay? I think he's talking about getting 3...if he can convince me and get the garage cleaned out enough to make a small coop in one part (its detached and in the backyard).
