Hi there all,

I'm new to here and to chickens. Currently 5 chicks, 3 in a homemade brooder and the other two in a bigger homemade pen in my garage. Currently I just started building my coop in my back yard, so we will see how that turns out soon enough, hooyah!

Thank you everybody

Thanks, I'll have to check out. On weekdays I only get about an hr to work on my coop. I've been at it for 3days now but it's coming along. Hoping to have it done by Sunday. So... Maybe you can help me, I want this to be good for 6 hens. I was thinking of 2 nesting boxes, an easy clean out door, and roost for them. The coop size is 2x4 because I'm trying to make it light weight so it can be a tractor. I'm also thinking of putting the PVC Pipes inside as a waterer and feeder. Any thoughts or ideas would be great.

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
