    Hey all, introducing myself here. I live in central AZ and just finished building my coop. I posted it here.....

    Since the pictures I have changed the roosting area to the opposite wall of the egg/nesting boxes. I also put a shower curtain under the roosting bars to catch some droppings. We will see how it all works out. We are getting 4 birds from a friend and bought another 4 from a neighbor. Waiting for them to arrive. My intentions are to put 2 inches of sand on the run underneath the coop. I have large flake pine shavings in side the coop and the nesting boxes. Hope it all works out. Thanks for the awesome information here at BYC!
    Looking forward to learning more about chickens here!
