    Hello everyone,

    I am just getting into the backyard chicken groove. I have wanted a coop for a while, but just don't have the cash, been laid off for a while, but still looking for ways to build with what I have. I have looked at a lot of your coops and you all are masters at building, I am going to try to do this on my own, as my husband isn't has syked up for this as I am so the more I can do myself the better. Once I get started he will get into it and and probably move me out and finish it, that is just the way he is.

    I have a large shingled dog house the dogs don't use, so I thought I would start with that. I also have a 10 X 10 X 6' dog pen I want to use as well. I don't have any chickens yet as I want to get a great place built for them first.

    Thank you all in advance for your expertise and for accepting me into your community.

    Dar

    Welcome to BYC! I started with chickens over the summer and the people of BYC have been great. Please visit my BYC Page for my blog links that you may find informative or amusing.

    Sounds like you already have a coop and run! My coop is a masterpiece, a master piece of scrap.
