I could really use some help. I have wanted chickens for a long time. I finally cleaned out and took down the old rotting potting shed that I had in the backyard.
I looked through tons of designs and thought I would just come up with my own, based on what I have seen and liked. I want to build a coop to hold about 6-8 chickens with an enclosed run. It is going to be attached to my shed in the back yard.
I am suddenly feeling overwhelmed before I even start and am wondering if I am going to be able to do this.
I don't know if I should build the run first and then build the coop into it, or build the coop first, then build the run around it.
How do I incorporate the hardware cloth? We have a lot of predators up here where I live in NH.
Help! Talk me down!
