well it should be the happiest day of my life as we are finally buying a house,but im not sure i can take my chickens! there is room, and i dont think any zoning laws,im just not sure we can get set up for them in time. we are on a time table,need to have our trailer moved by sept first. so we've sold the trailer, got approved for a loan and found a house. a nice house in the country but only one outbuilding and dh needs it for his junk. dh cannot build anything! every house we have looked at ive been eyeing places (building that are already there!) for a coop. im trying to convince dh that we could section off just a small portion of the building for the girls, there are only 6! argh!! we had planned on staying here another year but..... if need be im hoping to find the girls a nice home and maybe by next summer have the money to get more chicks and get them set up. i just needed to tell someone who will care! thanks byc people you are the best! UPDATE well we for sure have bought the house, unless something crazy would happen like the apprasial not being enough! so my sister has this rubbermaid building, like you buy at sears or lowes. it is completly plastic, bottom and all. it has a door on the front that swings open and the top slides back to open. is there any hope i could turn this into a coop? im sure it would be predetor safe but im worried about ventalation since there are no windows. like i said my dh cannot build a thing! im dead serious,plus buying a house sort of unexpectidly leaves us a little broke. im hoping this will work maybe i can put some windows in it. any ideas?
