Our First Chicken Coop in Wisconsin

    Our First Chicken.jpg Hi All! Just excited to show our new coop and run! We are new to this chicken thing and are happy our coop is done! We currently have sand in the coop and it's working out great! I just sift through it daily with a pitch fork wrapped in hardware cloth and toss the poop out like you would a cat box. No smells, no wet spots, just fresh sand daily. We still want to add lights on the sides of the windows and solar lights in between the hastas. The coop is 6x8 and so is the run. We just put up a solar electric poultry netting fence for them to roam around inside our woods but we gotta buy some more polls to get the netting off the ground a bit more so it works. (Woods is hilly and full of weeds so we need to figure out a way to keep them off the fence.)
