    Just an update to our new project.

    Today we took down the old coop and officially ended the "out with the old" phase of our endeavor.

    As we continue to learn from all of our new friends here at BYC, just thought we'd share the fun of it all, along the way.

    [​IMG] How fun is that! Thank you!

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you build. I'm not sure I know what "open air" means? I don't know what winters are like in Kentucky, and I'm wondering about night time predation. I'll stay tuned! [​IMG]

    Oh, and nice work, Travis! I wish I could borrow you for a day! [​IMG]

    "Open Air" is the phrase I use to describe a "Woods" type coop. Here is the link that sent me in that direction.

    I've since gotten the book, studied a bunch of alternatives and thanks to the good folks here at BYC, I am now a devotee of that method of raising chickens.

    I have family that is from Paducah, and spent many summers that side of the state. Much time spent at Kentucky Lake as a child. Fond memories to last a lifetime. Nothing like going back home. I hope you make it back to Paducah.​

    Thank U! Ky Lake was a wonderful place to be. My husband doesn't want to go back but our son & grandson are there so I may go back for awhile to just be with them! Good to met you!​
