Caught the bug!

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Loco Layer, Feb 16, 2015.

  1. Hello all. I've been caught up in BackYard chicken movement! I've been lurking for a few weeks just trying to soak in all the great info. I have 5 acres in the High Desert of Southern California. I'm just trying to figure out what coop I want to build at this point.

    With the heat I would want a coop that is well ventilated. More wire, less wood.
