    My Coop
    I am new to farming, but not new to chickens. I have just recently bought a hobby farm and I am trying to convince the wife that chickens aren't the evil, stinky, creatures she has heard the rumors of.

    I have enjoyed reading the forum. Long time lurker on here, but a recent member.

    I cannot wait until I have my coop finished so I can get to proving the entertainment value to my wife.


    I also cannot wait to get my ten post so I can add an avatar and a little info.

    Thanks,
    Rob

    [​IMG] Hi and welcome!

    Oh, I hope not. The plans are for a 12 x 20 coop divided in half. One side for meat birds, the other for layers. Approximately 50 chickens.

    Well she hasn't ever laid eyes on a silkie, when she does, I am afraid I will be building a coop for "her" chicks. [​IMG]
