New Member in NW Florida

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello all, I came across this site looking for plans to build a coop. After looking at several books with "complete" plans I kept returning to the "Country Charm" post by  tsproull. After several more searches I decided to use  tsproull's plans to build our coop. Its not the exact replica but you certainly see his design. I am in NW Florida an I live on about 3 1/2 acres. I wanted something for my grandkids, so they could experience a little life outside the video games and smart phones; so far they are very interested.

 My hobbies include hunting, fishing, gardening and hanging out with the five kids and grand kids. Look forward to learning from the members of the forum and a big thanks to  tsproull for his plans that he shared.  http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/country-charm

The chickens are on the way... White, Leghorns, Bar Rocks, and a couple of Silkies for the wife.

Very nice introduction and congratulations on your new chickens ... all good breeds.  Think that is great that they will all be interacting with your grandchildren.

:frow Yeah, that's what the hubby says, "The chickens are for the wife."  Yet it was he who insisted on an automatic door openener to keep the predators out of the coop at night.  And it was he who faced security cameras toward the coop to watch out for the two-legged predators.

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

The yellow could care less. The chocolate is a reformed felon as she killed a few of my fathers free range chickens as a pup. That was years ago and she is fine around them now. I still watch them both when there are chicks around. My chickens have a house and run so I don't foresee any issues. Possums, coons, hawks and coyote's   concern me more.
