    I'm starting the coop for the chickens and I'll post some pictures along the way. If anyone has suggestions, tips, or pointers let me know. I'd like to have the advice before I finish the project. [​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great to have you onboard. I'd suggest you post your question on the "Coop and Run - design and maintenance" section as you will have greater chances of feedback from our experts on that subject.

    In general though, if you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken.


    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
