Hi there, I have just joined and have not even got my chickens yet. I have purchased a coop online which should be arriving later this week; hopefully my DH will help me assemble it. Then in a couple of weeks we are off to the battery farm to liberate 4 hens. I have never kept chooks before, but I'm really looking forward to it. I have to say that Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and River Cottage have pushed me in this direction!
