Hey folks - I'm new here, but I've been browsing around and gleaning a lot of information. I decided recently to get a couple of chickens, and after searching around on craigslist, I found 2 10-month old gold-lace wyandottes that have been organically fed and handled enough to be friendly. So... before I could buy them, I had two days to build up a coop. Here's the frame. It's starting to look like something. I lowered the floor blocks to give more vertical room in the coop. It's starting to look like a coop! I spent a TON of time trying to figure out how I'd make a secured run. I've got raccoons that wander through my backyard at night, so my chickens need a lot of protection. Aren't they cute? My cat seems to think so. It looks like at least one of them is productive. She set it in the bedding on the floor of the coop instead of in the nesting box. Oh well. It's still an egg. Hooray!
