    How do you get water out to your coop?

    Hey, I am remodeling my chicken coop and I thought it would be efficient if I could get water out to the coop. So, I wanted to know how you guys got water out to your coop or what natural methods you use?

    Need Help keeping my coop secure... suggestions?

    Okay, thanks! The budget isn’t that much of an issue because my dad said I could do whatever I needed to. I don’t want to spend a lot of money though because I’m saving up to expand the coop almost 2x in size. What I’m doing right now to is putting 2 feet of hardware cloth around the whole coop...

    Thank you! And yes, I will upload pictures in the morning. I cleaned up the whole coop today for a fresh start and started digging about 2 feet wide and 3 inches deep to put hardware cloth around the perimeter.

    I’ll take pictures of the coop later. My coop is all one price it’s kind of like a shed so the run and coop part are together.

    Help with the breed/sexing

    Feeding the flock

    Okay, thank you. Do you think that giving the older hens eggshells would provide enough calcium? I am on a budget because I have to pay back my parents for a loan. I recently bought two cows so I am trying not to spend a ton of money right now.
