    Hello I am Bigreddog. I am brand new to raising chickens. So new, that I am just starting the task of building my coop. I have looked at several different coop designs on BYC and am confident that I can build a suitable coop. I will build the exterior and then post some questions in hopes for feedback from experienced members as to the interior. Looking forward to making many member friendships through BYC and many happy posts.

    If you go to "where am I, where are you," on the social forum you can locate and post on your state thread. That will help you make friends sooner and hopefully some living near you.

    Keep in mind when building your coop 4 sq. ft. minimum inside coop and 10 sq.ft. minimum outside in the run for each bird, of course more is better. space perches 12-15 in. apart, build nest boxes 12-15 in square with sloping top to discourage perching on top.
    Welcome and enjoy BYC!
