    Hi there! I am a complete newbie to all of this. Thanks for your patience. So we have 3 silky chickens. No roosters. It's against our city regulations. My question is how do I set up the inside of the coop. As far as what goes in each section? Where do they eat? Do I just spread wood shavings throughout the entire thing? [​IMG][/IMG]

    I would hang the feeders and waterers under the sleeping part. If where you put the coop is on grass or dirt I would not put any shavings on the out door part. It would be more of a hassle.

    I hope this answered your questions and welcome to byc!

    If you have anymore questions let me know!:)
