    I love it! I'm actually putting some of your ideas into our new coop, which is still in the drafting stages. I plan to make a scale model of at least the basic dimensions out of cardboard before we even purchase/reclaim wood for the coop. Love the name plate too, makes it look like a little kid...

    Most docile rooster breed?

    Poopy box!!!

    With colder weather coming I can't really separate them. My coop is approximately 6 feet long and about 5 feet wide. It's about 5 foot tall from the ground up. I'll try to get pics tomorrow. She hops on the tarp by the looks of it. Her feet are covered in poo when I check on them. I try to clean...

    Poopy box!!!

    Ok so I bought an EE this summer and she's doing good, her feathers have grown back from the roosters at her previous home and she's a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to my two other girls. She is so scared of them that she refuses to roost on the bars (we have two long bars) the big girls...

    Need an answer ASAP

    My Buff Orp was squeaking when she breathed and sounded just down right weird when she tried to bawk at me. Was perfectly fine earlier when she let us know her coop mate was in the nest box. I noticed her nose was running till about 5 minutes after I got her out I the run and sorta quarantined...

    Well the RIR died from an unknown cause while I was at a wine trip. But now I'm starting to wonder if my barred rock is a hen or roo since the wattle and comb is huge!

    aging chicks

    I'm thinking my RIR is older than my other chicks. She has tail feathers developing and is a good bit bigger.

    Paint. Latex? Oil?

    We need to seal/weather proof the outside of our coop to keep it from warping. I know chickens will peck at it out of curiosity so what should we use?

    What do you grow to feed the chickens??

    you gave me an idea. i remember my rabbit from years ago having a wire ball for hay that we hung in the hutch. she loved it so much that we ended up buying a new one cause she ripped it down playing with it :D
