    Hi! I am new to backyard chicken raising and have 2 cute Black Austerlorps. I am not ready to move them outside but an looking for a a cheap home for them and wonder what people her thought of the Picture that is my avatar. It would be temporary for the summer months. If anyone has any other inexpensive ideas please send them my way. At this point...I need all the help I can get. Also...I am handy but not a "builder".
    Thanks.

    Welcome to BYC. The coop in your avatar should do just fine.
