|photo from the guide to raising chickens|
Photo Dude and I have been seriously talking about getting chickens this year with our tax return. The date of the return is quickly approaching and I think we are getting cold feet. We have never owned a pet together (well except a cat named Pig but that only lasted a few weeks). The whole thing seems a little daunting. What if it gets too cold here in Michigan? What if they get sick? Can we really afford a coop? Do we need the one we saw for $1,500 or can we get a smaller one for less and still be okay? We only want about six chickens max because there is nothing saying we can't own chickens but there isn't anything saying we can either. Any tips/reassurances would be greatly appreciated!
