    Ok Guys and Gals,

    Quick update.....finally after I don't know how of a wait time I will be starting the "gound breaking" of my very first coop. We are all moved in in our new house. We closed late April and I just finished working on the inside lastnight at 1 am! lol The renovations in the inside took waaay longer than expected (imagine that!), the good news is that I got plenty of practice working with my new toys (what some of you may call power tools! lol)...


    This weekend I'm going to be working on my backyard moving bricks away from where I want my coop and will level the ground off etc....not sure if I will start a post for everyone to follow along or if I will wait until is done to post...either way pics will be added sooner than later....


    With that said i will be needing some chicks soon and I would rather get them from one of you BYC locals if at all possible...so if you will have some chick available in a few weeks feel free to PM me.....


    Oh and I will prob be posting on the coop area with the million ?'s that I'm sure will come up as I build the coop...so look in there to help me out pls...hehehehe

    WE will be pouring the cement floor of our long awaited chicken coop. I will take pics as we move along - with so much else to do - it will probably take 6 months to build the coop. The coop will be the shape of a pentagon, 9 feet on each side.

    so are on our way,,, everything is A-OK.

    I am so excited.....

    The cheapest coop will be one you make yourself from found/recycled materials. If that's not an option trying posting a "wanted" ad on craigslist. Be sure your chickies have plenty of shade, water and lots and lots of ventilation.
