Coming in little late in the game! lol I live in Dixon, MO, Two hours from Sedalia, Springfield, Columbia, and St Louis. LOL
I am a single mother of 3 boys (12, 10, and, 3 yrs) I have two dogs, Rottie and German Shepherd.
I currently do not have any chicks yet i am doing research and pricing out buying a coop vs building.
Looking at getting rhode island reds. I was thinking 8 hens and 1 roost would keep up in eggs pretty fine but thinking now that 4 hens and one rooster might be ok..... thoughts?
i have a rough idea of what to make coop but thinking of going smaller
Right now i have an idea for a run that is 2ft Hx4ft Wx8ft L
and a coop that is 1 ft high legs then another 4 ft high x 4 ft wide x ft long
no roost or hen boxes are in the estimate yet and its $330 so far
i know this doesn't sound like much but yikes
Any idea or suggestions let me know
looking forward to getting the chickens
