    Hello all... I am a reluctant owner of 6 new chicks. about 3 weeks. Wife insisted we get chickens.. and well, when she insists, she gets.
    Got a photo on my phone at work of the chicks in the house. That's how I was notified of their purchase... [​IMG]

    Anyway this site has been a big help, and many of you have PM'd me already answering many of my questions, as I plan to start building the coop this weekend,
    as the "girls" are QUICKLY outgrowing the 55 gal fish tank.

    Would love to hear from some fellow New Englanders to insure I build my coop properly to deal with our Humid summers and Nasty winters...

    But, thank you to all who have contacted me.

  4. Can't help you with coop design for a cold climate since I live in a very temperate climate. But I would like to welcome you. Perhaps if you check out the "Coop" topic, you'll find ideas there for cold climates. Best of luck with your new project and......[​IMG]

    Just be sure the coop is well insulated and ventilated, dry bedding esp in winter.
