Picked up a couple of Red Star chicks about 2 weeks ago and assembled a coop this afternoon. Up to now they've been entertaining me in a couple of large boxes in my home office.
We have 2 acres outside of Phoenix so we don't have to worry about cold winters much. Just our dog; will need to work with her on that.
I do have questions about a coop I bought and assembled today. Will post those in another area.
