    Well Howdy from Northern California, USA! Nice to have you with us. My grandfather was born in Derry County and died on my 5th birthday. Unfortunately I never met him. Sorry for that bit of rambling. Enjoy Backyard Chickens! Welcome here! :D

    Hi and welcome! I've only been a member here for a week, but I'm far from the newest member any more. This is an active and very friendly community I've found.

    Also, it's nice to see another donkey person. We're waiting for our first coop to be delivered (in kit form), but our visiting chicken hangs out in the donkey barn and she's the reason we have decided to set up our own coop and run.

    Would LOVE to see pics of the coops you've built so far.

    omg everyone is SO friendly!
    Thank you so much for the warm warm welcome.
    I actually built the coop already but took a LOT of ideas from some of the threads on this board, not for the first time.
    I posted my build here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/octagonal-coop-build-d.1312340/
    It was fairly easy for a newbie woodworker like me if anyone has any questions I'd be happy to answer!
