In the Brooder
- Nov 25, 2015
Hey hey- I am a freshman at this backyard chicken life and I would like to build my own chicken coop - can anyone please send me ideas on how they built their coop?? Thanks!!
once you sort out the coop part, start looking for hens. They typically aren't that easy to find in the winter but sometimes people get tired of fighting bad weather and dump their hens. You won't have much of a selection of breeds but you can fill in next spring. It's also nice to have a multi aged flock to help flatten out the production peaks and valleys.Thank you for such a quick response, so I'm living in New Jersey and it's beginning to get cold - I plan on getting 6-8 hens (not chicks), should I wait until the spring or is it ok to start them in the winter ???
Hi my husband has recently finished our coop made from pallets, so besides a £12 box of screws it didn't cost anything but time.this was his first real diy project.I'm very proud of it,and our girls seem happy enough to be giving us eggs. Good luck with yours
