Creative Coops
This Grass Valley business sells modular chicken coops, including some on wheels, for different sized flocks. The coops are designed to be adaptable and grow along with your chicken raising enthusiasm.

The Co-op and Soil Born Farms offer classes on keeping chickens several times a year. Look for another round of classes on the topic in the new year.
