Hello from Kansas!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Rusty. I'm completely new to this chicken thing. We recently picked up 2 Rhodebar pullets and 2 Cinnamon Queen pullets. I'm going to attach pictures of the coop (dog house turned chicken coop) and hope for some feedback whether it be negative or positive. I'm looking for ideas to make things better. The run is going to be 14' long by 10' deep and 6' tall, completely enclosed with fencing. Any ideas or feedback is appreciated. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

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 Rusty and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. I'd suggest posting your coop question in the "Coops and Runs" forum for the best response. For now though, I am not seeing any ventilation (sorry if its just that they are not showing in the photo). 

 

Best wishes

Nice to meet you Rusty.  If you have a solid top on the run if will provide some shelter from the elements, as well as keep out climbers, jumpers and raptors. Plus keep chickens from flying out.

 

Crowded chickens  are angry chickens.    Rule of thumb  is to allow  4-5 sq. feet per bird in the coop, excluding nest boxes and roosts.  and  10 sq. feet  per bird in the outdoor run.
