first thank for taking the time to look at my topic. Second im new to the wonderful world of Chickens. We had one show at the backdoor. Over the past few day watching my 3 yo son laugh at the chickens antics made me realize i have a new hobby. I have an area that is roughly 10' by 10' feet. Id love to keep 4 - 6 chickens in it. Here is a photo of what im working with. The space has water run to it. Yes it needs some cleaning up as the old owner of the house was elderly and the area not maintained. Here is the right side. left side Back wall looking out I live in San Bernardino CA The average temps are 100f average in Aug-Sept with a record high of 115f. 40f average in Dec- Jan with a record low of 20f I dont have a major amount of predarors but we do have a few Hawks, some skunks, a possom or two and cats. Im looking to utilize the current cinderblock wall as the back of the coop. Any ideas would be wonderful. Thanks again.
