Thread Starter 

Hi my name is Chrissy. we have a busy house with children dogs and cat plus our new add on baby road island reds. 6 of them. At the moment they sleep in our room in a very large cage. Our dog is very protective of them. We are trying to decide on a coop style.

Hi Chrissy,

 

Don't take too long deciding on the style of coop...those little chicks grow fast! Just a few things to keep in mind for your coop:

- make it as big as you can (that way they'll have lots of room which they like and also, you'll be able to add a few more)

- lots of ventilation

- make it tall enough you can stand up in it

 

Hope you're enjoying the RIR's, I've enjoyed the ones I've had.

 

It's nice to have you here!

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

Hi Crissy and welcome to BYC. I agree with NFCs sentiments regarding your coop - the Coop section has so many ideas to take inspiration from.

 

All the best
