    I am new to raising chickens. We have 8 hens who are 16 weeks and 5 week old chicks.

    This site has been fantastic! I find all the info I need here.

    Thank you for the site and all of the posts!

    Below is our coop, we have almost finished painting.

    Love your coop, and...I used to live in VA...years ago. I lived in Stephens City..back in the 60's when hardly anything was there. I understand it's grown a bit now. [​IMG]
    Then lived in Winchester. I imagine it's grown too!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. What a beautiful coop, is it your own design?

    Thanks! The coop is modified from a basic design we saw online. the dimensions, windows and some other aspects were changed. It was a much bigger project than we anticipated!
