    Howdy,

    I've never owned chickens of my own, but have been taking care of a friend's when he is out of town and decided I would like a few of my own.

    Started building a coop today! Using a wooden shipping crate as the basic box, will post pics when I get some.

    We live in city limits and are allowed up to 10 hens, but will probably just start out with 4 or 5.

    Love this site already, have learned a ton!

    Hi and welcome to BYC. Good luck with your coop build.


    This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in that link. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.

    Best wishes

    Hello medicinman2
    Welcome to BYC.
    Good luck with the coop build. Don't forget that cities have predators to.
