    Hello everyone, im new to the page here. I've been thinking about building a coop in the spring time for a small flock of about 6 hens. Already have done hours and hours of research on the subject. My question is, does anyone have a small backyard coop in CT that i could come visit? I just want to see, and talk to someone first hand about the coop design, and I want to see how messy the birds are, and how much maintenence is involved. If anyone would be kind enough to show me around their coop it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Kyle

    Welcome! I'm a little far away, in Michigan, but you could still come visit.... Check on the Conn. thread, if there is one, to find nearby 'crazy chicken people'! Mary

    Kyle, where in CT are you? I'm in Barkhamsted, in the NW hills of CT. I've got chickens and ducks. Here's my coop and my birds.

    If you ever take a trip up to my area, let me know. I live right near the Barkhamsted Reservoir. Its about a 50 minute trip for you. Nice drive once you get off Route 8.
