1st time having chickens-brand new coop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there! I am a complete newbie to all of this. Thanks for your patience. So we have 3 silky chickens. No roosters. It's against our city regulations. My question is how do I set up the inside of the coop. As far as what goes in each section? Where do they eat? Do I just spread wood shavings throughout the entire thing? [IMG]

I would hang the feeders and waterers under the sleeping part. If where you put the coop is on grass or dirt I would not put any shavings on the out door part. It would be more of a hassle.

I hope this answered your questions and welcome to byc!

If you have anymore questions let me know!smile.png

The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.
