Hey there I stumbled across this website doing research for my future coop. Best website I found. So much information available. Thanks Well I don't own any chickens or have a coop built yet. I have my plans for everything. I know how much materials I will need. It will have the DLM in coop. Sand in run. Figure I will purchase little by little for the coop. I plan on building a 8'x7'6"x6' coop with a 15'x7'6"x6'.. total 23'x7'6"x6'.. big coop lots of fresh wood... I'm excited about the future of having chickens after everything I have read. When I was a child we had chickens on our property. I plan on getting my chickens from Dare2dreamfarms.com in Lompoc. Anyone know anything about this place. I plan on getting 10-12 different pullets. Do you recommend a place online or here in southern California. Thanks. look forward to talking to you guys..
