post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well spring has almost sprung here in the small town of Bradford Pennsylvainia. The husband and I are sitting in the living room planning out our coop, looking a chickens and wondering how many of each ducks and chickens we are going to get. Right now its a toss up and depends on what out local tractor supply has to offer. hugs.gif

Make your coop bigger than you think you'll need...chicken math can take hold at any minute, lol. Have fun planning and selecting your chicks!

Remember to figure in      Coop - 4-5 sq.feet per bird (chickens)   and run - 10 sg.feet per bird.  Chickens get very nasty when overcrowded - bullying, feather plucking, and at extremes cannibalism.    Plus:  flimsy poultry wire only keeps chickens inside does nothing to keep predators  out.  1/2" hardware cloth is the gold standard for replacing chicken wire.
