My father works for an engine remanufacturing company and picked us up an engine crate for free. We live inside city limits but are so excited about starting our first coop/chicken tractor. My dad is working with me to construct the coop using a variety of concepts. We ll have three nesting boxes, 2 roosts, a 7 ft run or so, with a moveable chicken tractor. We can have up to 6 hens by city ordinance, but i think we ll start with 4 or 5. We ll pick up our Plymouth Barred Rocks chicks from the local Estes hatchery this week while we finish the coop, which should be done in the next few weekends. Let me know what you think. I ll keep you updated with our progress and chicks!
