I have just moved up to VT. I finally live where I can have chickens! I have been researching coops (structure, size/#, location), supplies, and breeds. Many other projects need to be taken care of on our property... So, I am going to reclaim some materials, build my own coop and pen, see how it fairs the VT winter, and fix any flaws before I purchase my flock of layers. I'm browsing EVERYTHING chicken... And loving it!
