1. Come check out hundreds of awesome coop pages (and a few that need suggestions) in our 2018 Coop Rating Project!

Another newbie :-)

  1. My name is Nancy and I live in New Hampshire. I have enjoyed watching my brother raise his chickens and would go to his house after work to give them goodies from my garden.

    He recently offered me some and I decided to take him up on his offer. I am taking three of his New Hampshire Reds. They are just now starting to lay eggs. I am so excited to have a few of my own chickens and fresh eggs, that my hubby and I are building a coop fit for a queen and as strong as Fort Knox.

    We got most of our ideas and information from this site. It has been tremendously helpful in every way. When the coop is finished, we will make one of those coop design pages so everyone can see it.

    I look forward to meeting everyone here.

  5. Yes! I learned that from this site. I think it is big enough for 5 anyway. I would like to post a pic, but I haven't figured out how to yet.
