I'd second that!

Indeed.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

We'd eat the turkey, but we're Orthodox Jews and private kosher butchering is a hassle. You have to know how  to do it; we don't, and don't know anybody who does.

I would give her to somebody else, and early Thanksgiving present.
