    Just wanted to say a quick hello.

    I have the opportunity to take in 9 hens and a rooster. Two black Americanas, one black sex link, one road island red, two welsummers, one EE, two barred rock. The roosters is a pure bred welsummer.

    I am in the process of constructing the coop and looking for any help with plan ideas.

    I live in Port Hope, Ontario, Canada. :)

    Trying to get as much information as possible

    G’Day from down under Momlife [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
