Hi all, I'm in N. Louisiana and planning on trying to raise Buckeyes. I'm going to free range the birds as much as possible but will have to predator proof them at night. I've been reading a lot on the forum and can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. The forum is so massive. After spending hours here I've decided to ask for help. I've become extremely frustrated with how to design this because I know nothing about chickens. I'm trying to design with the future in mind. I'm ready to start building a coop for about 50 birds for meat and egg production. I'm planning on pouring a concrete slab 10'x25' with a shed roof that will extend into the run 6'-8' for extra cover for shade and to prevent rain from blowing in the coop. The coop will be three sided(open air will face south) with a 25'x50' run. Basically a 25' long building with a 50' deep run attached to it. So here is were my questions begin. If I want to selectively breed specific birds what do I need to do? How do I design for breeding in the future. Is the design above good to start with or should I change this?
