    Hey! My husband and I just finished our coop this weekend. And the chickens will be here on tuesday! We are very excited to get started! We managed to spend NOTHING on the coop. The structure and fence were already standing from a previous owner. We cleaned it up and re-roofed using leftover materials from our house roof. Even around the fence for reinforcement from digging predators we were able to scrounge up enough large stones from other areas on our property. Yay for resourcefulness!

    I'm still looking into a better option for feed than what is available in our area. I'm not wanting to stay with purina, but its our only options at the moment. Hopefully after some pricing and research I will be able to go more organic or at least less processed and more whole grain, etc. Any tips and sources for feed would be appreciated!

    [​IMG]search for your state thread on the "Where am I, Where are you forum) you may be able to find others around your locale and they would know who has the different foods, etc. for sale.
