    I'm new to BYC..... my wife and I bought some chicks on April 1st 2016..... I built a brooder out of a plastic tote from Wally World and the rest is history. I guess I went a little crazy building the coop.... I was told that it was over kill by friends who have had chickens for some years now.... but I don't listen to them....I take good care of everything that depends on me and loves me back.... so my Chicken Manor is just right for my 5 chickens.... who know, there may be more in the future...... I'm glad we found this site and I'm sure there will be lots of questions and thung's to share in the near future.....

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] That is a really nice looking coop! Please do check out the coop contest link Yorkshire Coop posted for you above. I think our members would like to see your build and get a few ideas from you.
