I am a newbie to the world of chickens. I just finished building my coop inside a old chain link dog run, and the girls seem happy with it. I have a buff orp, rir and a sweet barred rock. Gotta keep it small as we are not supposed to have chickens in this community, out in the country no less, but am ready to fight if they catch me and say 'NO'!!!! Love BYC.
