    We have 6 assorted pullets just starting to lay and have decided to get another 10 or so chicks this spring. Started coop number two this weekend. Picked up lots of ideas from the forum that will go into the coop. It will have a 10' x 12' run plus the 4' x 8' space underneath.
    Updates later.

    Tell me about it, I have 9 assorted hens that I got last spring (got them when they were one day old) right now we are building a new coop for more hens we ordered for Spring. You are so right when you said chickens are addictive.
    Your coop is looking good, don't forget to post more pics as you go along

    That's a nice coop. Do you plan on attaching an outside lot?

    Going to use a 10x10 dog kennel opened up on one side to make it 10x15. Feeder and waterer will be hung under the coop.
