Hello I am about tostart on a new chicken adventure!! My babies will be in the first week of April. Just in time for my birthday! Have the brooder all worked out, and loads of food, and lots of help to build the coop, now I need a plan and materials! I'm excited and pretty ambitious, maybe too ambitious, but its going to be a great adventure! I have my helpers lined up, am gathering reclaimed wood, have a clear path to the Home Depot and Lowe's but now I need to find a coop design that will go long across my back fence. I'm in Lafayette La and our restrictions say 25 ft from occupied buildings. So my spot has to go wide across the back near the fence. I've found so many great coop designs on your forum, and loads of great advice and info there as well. I will probably end up putting something together that takes the best ideas of many. What are some things to keep in mind? What do you wish you'd thought of before you built it? I'm thinking something with access on many sides so that will take some planning. Thank you all for your wonderful sage advice you've already given me that you weren't aware you'd shared with me!
