    This is a photo of my partially completed 8x8 coop in Alaska. It needs to be insulated, including a vapor barrier, and nest boxes need to be made.

    Here is a photo of the run, I have 8 Jersey Giant/Ameracauna 1yo layers that I recently bought.

    Great start, keep working on it!

    Thanks, I hope I'm as enthusiastic about the girls when it's -30 and I have to check temps/water!! We'll have a new trail to shovel but I think this is one of the best decisions I ever made! They are so fun!

    Hi from out west, in Fairbanks!! Funny about the bear comment, I guess there's one harassing campers about 20 miles from where I live. I am fairly close to town so I don't think I'd have any problems like that but we have to watch for hawks and ravens, in addition to foxes. God help me, I haven't had any problems with predators.
