We've been pretty spoiled this winter with mostly mild weather....

.....and after a few really warm streaks we are even more spoiled.

It'll pass.

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."

Nothing yet, however the snow is melting!! It's taking it's time but you can see grass now! Soon once it's all gone and not as muddy we'll be able to get to building the coop!

 

Also, my chicks are coming on April 28th! :jumpySo the countdown has begun!

Tried to get it into my signature but it just didn't work. So here it is! :D I have a cuter one that's much bigger but it's not letting me put it in the post. So here's the link! :D  

 

EDIT: I have no idea if the embedded countdown timer is going to work so here's hoping it does.

Save the raked up leaves!  Chickies love scratching thru them - just pile them in your run and sprinkle with scratch, the chickens will do the rest.  Our feathered kids love yard work weekends:cd

 

Good luck with your build!
