I have been lurking around for some time now. I have learned a lot already from BYC.
We got our first chicks on Halloween. We have 8 Silver Laced Wyandottes and 2 Buff Orpingtons.
I grew up smelling chickens everywhere in Springdale Arkansas, but never had anything to do with them.
My wife and I finaly moved our two boys out of town this summer. We now have five acres for them to run on and plenty of room for whatever.
We have plans for a garden, small apple orchard, shop, and remodel on the house.
I plan on building the coop as a copy of Carolina Coops Manor House. It is a deep litter coop. I am planing on 4'x6' coop and 6'x6' attached run. If it's not to heavy I would like to use it as a tractor coop.
Thank you in advance for all the help and info.
P.S. I am not very computer savy. But if I can figure it out I will post the build of the coop.
