A very good book. It's full of very useful information, pictures, and tips. I'd recommend it.
I think this waterer is great. It only holds 2 gallons of water so if you're a younger, older or out of shape it's not too much work to carry from the hose to the coop. It's it's very easy to fill...
I bought a one of these this summer. It is fantastic. It will pluck 2 birds in 10-15 seconds. My son in law and I cleaned 20 birds in less than 90 minutes. At the end of 90 minutes they were...

A Brinsea Mini was my first incubator and it will be my last too. It is a high quality small incubator for the backyard hobbyist; no, you can't hatch a ton of chicks out of it, but it's ideal for...

Good point yes they are they were used for plants but it gets too hot in the summer months. Chickens love it both in the winter and summer as the temperature of water works both ways. I'm not sure how the Orpington's will do but my project birds do quite well. There's a metal chimney box at the far end it has an gas charged cylinder for opening the vent on top of the chimney. This lets hot air out. I've put a house fan into the door it has a thermostat to turn on when it gets too hot.
Whole thing cost about $300 to build. All glass, aluminum roofing, aluminum frames, wood was recycled. Paid 39 for the gas cylinder vent opener. The rest was spent in foam insulation for the metal roof part.post #43353 of 1576311/30/16 at 12:44pmpost #43354 of 1576311/30/16 at 12:44pmpost #43355 of 1576311/30/16 at 12:44pmThread Starter

Yes I know! That should be motivation enough for a procrastinator like me
I haven't even got the breeding pens started on In the next few days I should have my roos taken out. The breeding pens and main coop should be in a big old cinder block loafing shed, than I can have my current coop empty for chick season.
My dad had surgery December so he was unable to help me out and the weather here is a mess, I'm running out of time to get all my stuff together!post #43360 of 1576311/30/16 at 12:46pmThread Starter
