Hi there! I'm new to the community & very excited to announce that my family added 6 week old Bantam/Bantam cross breed chicks to our menagerie today! They are settling in well in their 100 gallon galvanized trough, & my kids (ages 4 & 1) are in love! I am so overwhelmed by the coop situation. We live in a township & have no major restrictions regarding chickens/livestock, & we have 12 acres to let our feathery girls free range. We plan on having a coop with run (very secure, given the local foxes, raccoons, coyotes, & hawks...not to mention both feral & domesticated cats & dogs), but I am intimidated by building a coop -- I don't think we're handy enough to execute it properly! Any suggestions regarding premade coops (brands/models you love? Things you wish you knew before buying a coop? Pep talk regarding building a coop vs repurposing a tool shed or something similar?). I can't wait to hear your thoughts & suggestions.
