    We are currently constructing our first coop and hope to have chickens this spring. The kids are super excited. It will be halfway under their treehouse with the treehouse's posts and floor to be used to make a run.

    G’Day from down under lovesown [​IMG] Welcome!

    Good luck with the build and best wishes to you and your new feathered family when they arrive.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Beware of trees near a coop, they are great as a jumping off point for raccoons, and birds of prey.
