Members: FAQ / I want to buy some hens and start a backyard flock. What are the absolute basic items required?

If you’re just starting out and/or someone dropped a bunch of hens on you, you’ll need the following: a chicken coop (we have some lovely plans for making your own, so check those out!), some type of flooring for outside, perhaps pine shavings or straw food and water and lastly L-O-V-E.
