Howdy from Clemson!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just picked up 5 babies (3 buff orpingtons and 2 barred rocks) yesterday from our local tractor supply! I'm very excited to get going on coop design and construction (or "coop-struction" as I've been calling it) and to start my mini farm! If anyone has any great coop wisdom, I'd love to hear it. But I'll be sure to check out the appropriate forum as well.

Hi and welcome to BYC! Congrats on your little ones - now the fun begins! I'd say there are as many coop designs as there are BYC members and each have their merits. I personally like the garden shed approach (cos I've got one and I'm lazy, among other reasons) as they give one considerable flexibility in terms of interior design - but thats just my opinion. 

 

I wish you all the best with your mini-farm and your coop.

 

Cheers

Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC.

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-

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

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
