Super excited to join the BYC community, just picked up my first 16 chicks today (8 barred rocks and 8 Brahmas). I am sure I will have lots of questions as time goes by, but right now my main focus is building the coop for my birds to move into when they get bigger. I have plenty of space to work with on my property and so far I have started with a very basic 18sq ft coop but I would love to see some simple and cost effective plans to help me design a coop that will be perfect for my birds ( if anyone has any suggestions I should also mention that I will be getting some ducklings soon and would like to build a separate coop that will be attached to my chicken coop.) I look forward to meeting every one and sharing all of my progress pictures!!!.
Feel free to message me with any ideas regarding coop designs and or general care taking tips you may have.
