If you have a large yard they are not much work at all. I have a dozen and from March to November they may go through 40lbs of feed. They pick all the bugs out of my yard. They will go through about 80lbs of feed from December to February due to lack of bugs. I also go through maybe 2-3 bails of straw a year. So at most I spend $50 a year to maintain the chickens and they give me about two dozen eggs a week from March to November. The winter months they slow down, because I do not have a heated coop. My chickens stop laying between the ages of 3-4, so I get 3 new chickens each year and Kentucky-fry the older ones. New chickens are about $4-6 each.

When you make a coup, make the door to the egg laying area heavy so animals cant get in, my dad has a side door to get in that has a lock and a small lockable door for the chickens to exit into their pen. Also look into getting "Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens".

I do not have a picture, but will try and upload one later. Mine is basically the same as the Barn from DIY Chicken Coop Plans from TheCreativeMom.com for Home Depot. I used three tab for the roof.

My neighbor, we call him Chickenman because of all the chickens he raises and shows, says to make sure the chicken roosts are NOT over the nesting area, chickens poop a lot when they sleep and will poop all over their eggs and nest.
