    I have just started into raising chickens and guineas, thus I have so much to learn and so many questions. I found this site when I was searching for Coop plans and ideas. I love the tractor coop, yet not sure if that is what I want to go with. I have a garden and would love to let them work on that spot before i plant. I also like the idea of being able to move them to more sun or less wind in need be. I plan on having two roosters, one for the smaller hens and one for the larger. I want a black sumatra but would love to any ideas as far as what would be a good rooster for different hens. I currently have two Road Island Red hens, one Banny hen and one banny rooster. I do not want to raise them to eat. I want them for eggs and the beauty of the chickens. I live in Southeas Tenn. Any ideas and or information would be wonderful. Thank you
