Hello from New York

Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I'm new to raising chickens, we just were given a coop. We haven't picked out our new family members yet, we have some work to do on the coop. Let us know what you think we can do to improve their new living quarters. Open to any suggestions. Thank you![IMG]

Glad you could join the flock! It looks like you are off to a good start with your new chicken adventures. You might like to pop by the coop section where there are some great ideas and designs. Here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/2/Coop_Designs

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Close off the opening  under the coop - or else birds will get in there and it looks much too low, for them to be able to turn and get out.  Cover the run, so they can't fly out and hopefully nothing can  fly in.  The kennel run fencing has  spaces too wide,  predators will be able to get through there or at least reach a body part and bite it off  ( a specialty of raccoons.)

I would back the  run fencing with  1/2" hardware cloth  for much better security.

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
