    Calling all New England BYCer's! We'll be having a coop building party soon(not sure of the exact date yet). We need help finishing our breeders coop before summer is over, so we thought there's no better way to do it, then to ask you guys! All you need to do is bring your tools(chickens too [​IMG]). We're thinking we want to do it after our guinea and quail hatch(so PC can take some home [​IMG]), that will be a couple weeks. But whenever is good for you guys is good for us! If you have any ideas or suggestions please let us know [​IMG]

    You know we will be there. It's gonna get hot soon so that can hurt us a little.
    We built our barn last year in september and other than the roof it wasn't bad.

    Look around at all the coops and post a pic of what you have in mind and the
    size you need. A plan and a detailed materials list is super important.

    Quote:Well we already have some of it up-the floor and a couple walls, so it shouldn't be that hard. We just need to make the run, finish the runs in the inside, finish the roof, walls, etc. We're making it after Gregs coop, but ours is smaller, it's 16' long x 8 x wide x 6' high and the run with be 16' x 16'. Let me see if I can find the URL to gregs coop..

    We may also want to make it a green coop so you can help with that [​IMG]

    We
    would love to have the water system and electricity in it also, but you know how hard it is to dig a hole in CT [​IMG] so we're questioning that.
