I'm new to the world of chickens. I've been reading and posting on the FB page, or other FB pages, for about a year. I've done a lot of research and I'm getting ready to take the plunge. My biggest struggle to date has been the coop. We briefly considered dropping about $2000. on the coop, but would really rather not. I have 2 questions today (I think just two). I will also post these questions on the FB page, for hopefully more input/suggestions. The first is about the coop. We bought a property almost a year ago that has a building that looks like a cross between a green house and a shed. It's enclosed in corrugated plastic, with a storm door, and full size window at the opposite end. We'd like to modify this for a coop by covering the door and window with 1/4" hardware cloth, lining the floor with linoleum for easy cleaning, cutting a small door into the side, into a run, and adding nesting boxes. Our weather is temperate, usually only dropping into the 20's 5 or 6 nights out of the year. Will the corrugated plastic be okay for those few nights that drop into the 20's, or should we insulate? My 2nd question is, where can I buy French Copper Black Marans? I'm getting into this for the eggs. I have no plans to breed, however I suspect there will be surprises from time to time, and I have no plans to show. I do understand that I will pay more for these birds than most other breeds, so no surprises there. Any and all advice will be appreciated.
