Hi there!

I'll be moving out to a 3 acre plot of land in a couple weeks, and I'm super excited to build myself a chicken coop, and start getting fresh eggs!

I've been researching building a coop, and I think (in order to save a little cash) I'll be going the pallet route. Being that I am in Canada, and we do get rather cold winters that seem to never end, I'm looking at several options for insulation, and heating in the winter.

I look forward to sharing my journey with you, and learning from you as well!

Also, in case you're curious, my name comes from a Thoroughbred Racehorse I used to care for many years ago. :)

Hello fellow Canadian!

I get cold winters too and we have insulation in our coop!
We sadly just lost one of our Red Links(I believe) to old age(only 3).

Hope to here from you soon
