It's been about 11 years since we have had chickens, we were up to about 25 of a very mixed flock. We relocated and I have been wanting to get chicks again for a couple years and it finally happened. I bought a small coop that I was gonna mod to hold 3 or 4 chickens. Our first purchase was 8 chicks, with the idea that we could loose 1 or 2 plus maybe a roo in the mix. Worst case if they all make it, we sell a few. Well They're all doing great at 7 weeks, not sure if there are any roos yet. Now to quick get a bigger coop done. It will be done enough for them to move into this weekend and I can do the rest with them out there, make real windows, shingle the roof and do the run. Original coop that I was gonna modify Then this happened Black Jack Rubr Coat 57 for the floor Waiting for the floor to cure. The flip outs will be windows (I have to make them) and the door will have a window. There are windows on both sides also. The front and back soffits have hardware cloth already. I used 2 x 6's for the roof rafters instead of 2 x 4's just to raise it a little higher for more ventilation.
