    Newbie from Gillingham, England

    I grew up with chickens many many years ago and just lately have felt the urge getting stronger and stronger. Having just acquired a small shed I decided to make a coop out of it. After designing and re-designing and getting lots of info from people like you guys, it's well on it's way. Problem...
