    Hello
    I've been lurking here for a while and decided to finally post . I'm from york pa and have 16 chickens and am a rookie !
    I have 6 Brahama Leghorn Cross 2 roosters 4 hens that are 5 weeks old , 6 barred rock and 4 rhode island reds that are under a week old . My future goal is 50+ eggs per week and 4-6 chickens for dinner/month along with a reduction in carpenter ants and other pests that I'm not fond of .We just bought this property with 9 acre's with a small orchard , greenhouse, and 2 streams so I'm hopping to be able to culitvate my own organic feeds, and be as self sustaining as possible!
    I just bought a pop up camper for 70$ to convert into a chicken tractor , and in the mean time built this outa lumber scrap lying my property .
    My intermediate coop :

    Welcome to BYC
    I miss PA, nice place to raise some chickens!
    Stationed @ Willow Grove NAS back in my Army days with the 79th ARCOM. seems like a life time ago.
    We had sister unit in York town, and I enjoyed visiting the HD plant while in town. This was way before I got my first chicken.
    I love steam town USA!
