Hi BYC . Just got my first ever 4 chickens yesterday . 2 Barred Rocks 10 weeks old 2 New Hampshire Reds 11 weeks old. My wife said YES to me getting chickens . (she puts up with a bunch O crazy from me (cars, motorcycles, pepper plants .. for my hot sauces, my bee hives, and now chickens !!! ) But the coop had to be "cute" thanks to all the info here I just finished my coop and almost done with converting the pergola from my hottub of days gone to become the run.
