    Metal roof construction (ventilation?)

    Hi, I'm almost done constructing my coop and getting ready to put the roof on. I'm using recycled metal panels and I'm not sure how I want to attach them. The question is do I notch the supports so the roof is flush with the walls or do I let the roof supports sit on top of the walls creating an...

    Black jersey giant pullet or roo?

    Finally started my flock 🐥

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? My mom had chickens when I was a teenager/younger adult and I loved them. When we finally bought a house 9 years ago, I was so excited to find out that we were allowed to have chickens. I wanted to get some but my husband wasn't on...
