My chicks are coming 4 weeks old soon and we're FINALLY starting to get the coop built!!! Hopefully it won't take more than a week, because these kids are getting ready to go outside as the brooder is starting to get crowded. We've decided to put the coop as an extension on the side of the barn. It will be 8X8 and the door into it will come from inside the horse stall that adjoins it, since we already had an outside door for that stall. The run will wrap around the barn to the far edge of the grass area. Got to figure out how to stretch a top around the tree. Hope the pictures come out. trying something new.
