    Corn Crib Silo for a Coop

    I’m not sure I can do the whole area due to the door. I don’t think I can get the current door secure enough or weather proof, so I will need to inset it by 3’. I think that is the current plan. I think we will be getting started this weekend.

    Chicken tractor for 12 hens

    I am trying to find coop ideas and saw this tread. I don't know about chicken poop, but I grew up with ducks and I am hoping chickens are less than that. Duck poop was everywhere. As a kid we had ducks and geese, I really enjoyed the geese they are great watch dogs but again there is the poop.
