Hi, my name is Susanne and I joined BYC from Germany (so please excuse my mistakes in language and spelling). I found BYC when I looked for coop plans and was very happy so see all the ideas and plans here. I'm living with my husband, my 15y old son, 4 arabian horses, 1 cat and since Sunday 1 cock and 5 chickens (Vorwerkhühner) in a rural area in the middle of Germany. When I lived on a farm about 15 years ago, we had some (50) free range laying hens. Now we want to have a small group just for fun and sor some eggs of course.
