    My wife and I have 4 kids and are starting a Chicken Coop. We are new to this whole thing but we are excited. I have raised rabbits in the past and enjoyed it. I built a 12'x12' run with a coop and picked up two Ameraucana pullets yesterday. I am picking up 4 other hen chicks later today. I am just trying to make them happy and eventually good egg producers. Learning to care for and raise animals teaches us all a whole bunch and we are looking forward to it. The kids are soooo excited. I appreciate everyone's knowledge in the forums.[​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC from nothern Michigan [​IMG]

    Your setup is beautiful! You may want to consider putting hardware cloth around the lower several feet of your run, to help keep predators from getting in or reaching through the fence (raccoons are notorious for that)
