YIIIPPEEEE!!!!!

post #1 of 5

We are moving! It's a farm about 5-7 mins away from where we are right now. It has a coop already built there, a yard light that shines on the coop and reaches the barn (I have horses to), I get a bigger room, and more space for the chooks... *takes a breath*
So I can raise more babies next spring! I've got some locals already who are interested in buying chooks from me next year. Also, there's another shed right next to it that I can make into another coop! smile.pngsmile.pngsmile.pngbig_smile.png also, my gramps wants me to raise some layers for him to! Needless to say, we are moving in before Christmas, which is probably going to be stressful, lol, but it'll be worth it! My chooks and horses won't be at my grandparents anymore, they'll be 30 feet away from me instead of 3-4 miles, lol I was originally going to choose the bigger basement bedroom. But I let my sis have it because I can sees the coop and barn out of the window of the smaller one, lol. smile.png it also means that I might raise a heifer calf for milk if my dad lets me. smile.png also, I can let my dog have pups in the springtime to. If she does, I'll be selling them for 200-250 dollars. They'll be purebred cattle dogs. smile.png also, back to the coop, smile.png the space in between the two sheds was originally a run, the previous owner told us, and with further examination, he was telling the truth. We just have to put up new fencing and my babies can run around outside with a shade spot, and a sunning area smile.png as some may know, my grandpa doesn't let chickens free range in the summer due to his garden, but now, they'll be able to go outside when ever! And more safely then they would have at my grandparent's house. I'm so EXCITED! big_smile.pngbig_smile.pngbig_smile.pngbig_smile.pngbig_smile.pngbig_smile.pngbig_smile.png

Congratulations! Sounds like a great opportunity for you and you are really excited! :) Can we have some pictures of the new coop when you move in/have them?

Dragons are a lot like cats. They sleep with one eye open, tail a-twitch, and will rain fiery death down upon you should you disturb them.

I think I'd lose the plot if I was moving to such a place! ūüėĄ

Good luck with your plans

Wow, that's fantastic!!!....and fast!....moving within the week?!

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
