Update! I brought my chickens home on July 25 of last year and the flock has grown to nine. Here are a few photos!I now have the original coop that I designed and built, and I also have a nursery coop that I found on Craigslist for $50. Needed a new roof and nesting box floor. You can see the heat lamp glow!

Welcome to BYC!  Diva, get back in your corner now....and take your meds...that's a good girl.  She just thinks she's a Conehead, @DIYgirl and because we love her we just let her.  I'm Blooie. I'm old, adorable, and I love my grandkids so everyone here indulges me.  

 

You are way smarter than I am, building your coop before you get your chickens.  I had 22 of the little boogers in a brooder in a tiny 8'X9' office here in our old trailer house, and hadn't so much as put pencil to paper.  <sigh>  Ah, the good old days....  If I had it do do over again I'd built the coop first and brood the chicks right out there but we don't always get do-overs, do we? I evicted them to the as yet unfinished coop when they were only 5.5 weeks old and now I just put new chicks out there from the start. I find I like them much better that way!

 

I'm not sure why you were unable to post a photo in a reply to a post...you should be able to.  Hmmmm  Now I have something to ponder!  Anyway, again welcome.  Be sure you carve some time for us into that schedule of yours!

Hi and a warm welcome. Loved your introduction. We are all a bit chicken nuts here (and some are simply nuts) but either way, we all have a great time here on BYC and hope that you will too!

 

All the best
