Hello All,

My name is Amanda and my MIL bouught my son two chicks in April. One of them died, and my FIL was keeping the other in a 2x2 cube, so my husband decided to build it a coop at our house. We have no idea what we are doing, or even what sex the chicken is. Then the next day my MIL declares that our chicken is a hen and brings home a full grown rooster. I'll be posting about this in the appropriate thread in a bit.

Anyway, any and all advice is welcome. I'm just trying to be a good chicken owner.



thanks!

Amanda

from Ohio. So glad you joined up. My only advice when building a coop, make it as large as you can afford. You are not going to stop at just a couple.

Thank you! I've already found some great info. We live in Middle TN, a tiny little place called Possum Town.

Also, because I wasn't particularly wordy in my intro, it's just me, my husband, and my almost 7 year old son out in the country. We have a blue heeler mix named chewy, a great outdoor cat named Ivy, tons of fish and just discovered we have 2 RIR roosters! We'll be keeping the one we raised (Bugsy aka Betsy) and trying to re-home Buster.

from Leiper's Fork! My suggestion is read everything you can about coops, predators, raising chicks, etc. You can't have too much info about chickens. Welcome to chicken addiction!
