    20190713_161546.jpg It all started for 2 yrs and 6 months ago when my better half said she was bringing 4 young roosters home for me to butcher. When she got home she had 4 very small black Banty's. After 6 months we had one survivor Moe. He had become her pet. Next thing you know we had 12 hens, then 30. Now we have 60 Hen, Moe, and a hen that turned into a Rooster we named himHerbert. They are all free range, completely spoiled. Now building a large coop 16× 8× 8. Never built one from scratch before. There it is glad to meet you all

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frowGlad you joined.
    Good luck with the coop build.
    8x16 sounds small for 60 birds unless the majority are bantams.
