It started for me probably much like it is starting for you: I got interested in getting some chickens. I did some research into coops and found that most of the coops on the market are unsightly and too big or hard to move. I live in a nice suburban neighborhood and didn't want something ugly in my backyard. I considered building my own and even found some plans for coops but never seemed to get around to it.

Then I found these wonderful coops from Forsham but the problem was that they were in England and Seattle, WA is about as far away as you can get. I contacted the company anyway and found a distributor that was closing her shop and bought her last coop. I set it up and bought my hens and soon I had so many friends and family asking me about my lovely coop that I decided I could hatch this into a little business.

I am now a distributor for Forsham products in the US and have shipped products all over the country. It seems that everyone loves chickens and is interested in this growing hobby. I own and use these coops myself in my backyard and I love it. If you're at all curious please give me a call. Even if you don't buy a coop from me I love talking about my chickens. And maybe I can help you learn a little more about it.
