    Hello everyone,
    I used to keep chickens in the suburbs. I used to keep a pair of Silver Sebright and one RIR. One point I did had three roosters-I bought two baby chicks and both turn out to be males, had my dad to cull them off and that how I ended up having the RIR. I did had one EE with the RIR but did not make it through. :(

    I had to give up chickens because of my neighbor dogs. I couldn't bare walking to the coop to feed them, clean the coop. So I made my dad to give them away to the feed store. I was in high school at the time (10th grade). I went hitatus with keeping chickens after that...now I want to keep chicken again. I wish I could have the old coop back. It a bit larger room for space and a proper hight for a roost, and it tuck away from the backyard. But I hate dealing with my neighbor dog jumping at our old fence that depsretly need to be replaced with a brick wall! :he
    Right now the old coop is converted back to a vetagble garden space.
    For now maybe this plan might be okay...
    I have a new potential spot to keep chickens, but the coop would have to be 4'X4'. How tall can the coop be? I want to talk to my dad about keeping chickens again and maybe if he is willing to make a "extenshion" to my mom "hair salon shed". I want the extenshion to be the new storage space. Bottom part would be the coop and the upper part to be the new storage space.

    Actually...I'm scratching the 4'X4' coop planning...I thought of something better and I wished I had thought of this Years ago! I will use the upper part of my mom vegetable garden. The area is where I am the most tolerable part of the backyard I will be around at. But I will make the coop 4' tall. The size will be much bigger- 3' in width X 9' in length. The roof will be a raised vegetable garden! :D

    I was thinking of eailer planning to be 3 feet tall of the 4' by 4' coop...but I like my new idea better. [​IMG]
