HELLO FELLOW BUCKEYS(GO BUCKS!)
                       I  live in southern Delaware County,between Sunbury and Kilbourne. I'm new to BYC,just got chicks at Easter time.I adore them.Glad to see others love chickens too.So far, no one I know understands,they think I have a few screws loose.  I admire people who love animals,I think animals have more on the ball than some people do... SUNBURY CHICK

Welcome all you newbies from Ohio!!!  Glad to see so many others nearby!  What kind do you have?  I had 13 Freedom Rangers but now they are in the freezer (please don't hate me)...also adopted 6 bantams from a guy down the road last year, and am picking up 12 Buff Orps from Meyer Hatchery on June 9.  Planning to sell baby chicks at the local feedstore because nobody does that around here anymore.  Also have a variety of egg layers at my BF's.  We are really enjoying our chickens and I meet more and more people in our city with chickens each week!  Amazing how this is catching on.  (And my family thinks I'm nuts too!!)

I'd love to see the Ohio coops if anyone wants to post theirs

Nothing fancy here, we are lucky enough to have a barn to keep our coop in, so it is basically a big cage.  It was relatively inexpensive to build and it is light.  I just did the big spring cleaning, and I love the fact that dh and I can lift it out of the barn to clean it!  It can house 10 chickens, we have 8 in it now.  We will have to add onto it soon as I have at least 5 chicks moving in later this summer, maybe more (depeding on how many turn out to be roosters!).

Hi, I'm a buckeye too, in southeast Ohio, down by the river.  Here are some of our coops:

Our 8x8 for the free-range Delaware flock (my neighbor really needs to mow her hay field):

Our newest addition 4x5, supposed to be a breeding coop for a trio of Dels (is currently sporting a brood of quail roll):

My little coop for my bantams (built off of an existing structure):

Im new to the forum and have decided to post my first post in the Ohio thread.

I live in the country near Minster on a farm in an area we call Gods Country. My loving wife and I have 7 beautiful children (the oldest is 17 the youngest is 3) with number 8 due in December (the kids have dubbed the poor child Ocho), a big ugly farmhouse, some acres, some out buildings, 30+ Meyer Hatchery assorted brown egg layers and silkies hatched in early February, rabbits, gerbils and other pets and assorted farm rodents.
Peace,
Dave
