Hey guys.... I'm Sarah and I live outside of Houston, Texas. I've finally convinced my husband that backyard chickens are a must. He's not quite as excited as I am. We're in the process of researching as much as possible and coop planning. Design and supply list is almost done, then time to build. We don't have a ton of space, so our flock will probably be limited to 4, maybe 5 dual purpose hens. Looking forward to a new adventure!

Have you checked out the coops section for ideas?  For a small flock of  4 or 5  and not much room -  a tractor type coop/run setup  might work very well for you.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hey guys! I know it's been awhile.... Busy with some family stuff. Wanted to post an update! Sorry, apparently I'm excited. My dad and brother came down one weekend and helped us build the coop. We've had our four girls for about 3 weeks now. Here are some pics....[IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG]

Beautiful chickens! Your coop turned out lovely. thumbsup.gif
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
