    Coop # 2 Now has a name "Casa de Huevos" . Here's where I'm at I built the nesting boxes out of barn wood there are 7 boxes. I now have a roost. The coop is 20' x 10' & the run is gonna be 14' x 10'. Hopefully I will put 25 chickens that yes I am attempting to hatch myself wish me luck I've never attempted to hatch an egg ever. I wanna hatch my own cause I like the chicks I have now. Their great at laying eggs & very friendly thus far. I have 10 gorgeous redheads that lay brown, khaki, & pink eggs. O forgot to mention this is a three sided coop.[​IMG]mg][​IMG]

    So this coop is being built into an existing structure? Looks great.

    Quote:Thanks> Yes, I was blessed but its still alot of work but I do love it. The farm has survived three generations & I will continue to make it better. Its in my blood I love the country. I had 19 wood duck houses for 19 years & monitored & took care of . Now , I'm into chickens I love my chicks & am now getting into hatching & raising my own brood .
