    Hey gang, i've been lurking for a while now and just joined. Here's my "poultry profile"

    Just finishing our 1st year of having chickens. We do it for the eggs but will be considering meat birds this spring.

    Have a 4x4x4 coop w/ attached external nest box (for saving floor space)
    Coop shares a wall w/ my shed so I can reach into the coop from inside the shed.
    Coop raised 36"

    Current birds:
    1 year old: (1) RIR, (1) Barred Rock, (1) Sexlink
    3rd week of brooding (4) SS

    I'll be increasing the coop to 4x8x4high before integrating chicks.

    No run, just coop and free ranging

    Great site you have here!

    Here's a pick of the coop when it was on the ground. It's 4x4x4 w/ cedar siding. Unfortunately we lost one of these BR
