Hi y'all! We're two gals with a pen and have a chicken coop on the way. One of us wanted to build a coop but we decided to buy one and build on to it as the need arises. We are first trying to make it predator safe and we need to fix the gate and add aerial protection and what not. We are not sure what kind of chickens we want for certain but we have some idea and live all the way out in Washington State so... We will most likely get some that are almost ready to lay for us.
