    hi everyone! my name is robert, and we have a little chicken place that we call "broken spoke acres" . we live on 6.7 acres in northeast ohio, and we just moved in our new chicken coop. it's 10x25

    we've had chickens for a little over a year now, and we currently have 75 chickens. 51 of these were raised from chicks that we got back in april, a mixture of barred rocks and rhode island reds. the other 24 are the hens that we got last year and are rhode island reds.

    looking forward to learning and sharing!

    To make a correction, the coop is 8x12. It came with a run that measures 12x25. We split the run up. One 12x12 is the chicken run, and the other 12x13 is going to be a shed off of the side of the coop for storage. I'm planning on adding a watering system once i get some gutters hung in the spring.
