    I just joined the forum and love it.
    I am constructing my 12 foot A frame coop and run and look forward to all the tips I can get!

    Hello! Since I live in the south I'm interest how folks up north keep backyard chickens warm during the winter. Look forward to seeing what you build.

    Strangely enough, it's been in the upper sixties for three weeks!
    I'm taking my time on the coop as I'll get my chicks in late April. I started with a $10 heavy duty wooden swingset off of Craigslist and have gotten nearly everything free except hardware. I even got all of my wire for free! I've spent less than $45 thus far and only need to put in the floor and sides. I watch CL like a chicken hawk and swoop in on supplies whenever I can.
