I'm a teenager who recently bought a chicken breed book. We have chickens, but not for breeding. Just eggs. The book got me itching to breed some chickens. I decided on Black Silkies to start. They may not lay much but I heard they are very broody and good mothers. Why not? Now here comes the hard part. Designing and Building a coop. I need ideas! I'm starting off with about 5* chicks. We have somewhere to put them for their first few weeks. I plan on breeding them so need room for more chicks in the future. I don't want much, and I want something I can add on too. I plan on getting other bantam breeds so I want to add runs (divided) for other pairs of chickens. Any ideas? Pictures would be nice if you have something like I mentioned at your house! * I am ordering 5 straight run mixed so they may be all males or all females, the number will matter on what I get!
