    Hello from Black Mountain, North Cackalacky!

    I love this site and am excited to be a part of it. I am currently building a coop for my first chicken pets ever, and I love it! I am trying my darnedest to build a predator-proof coop, and the designs and advice on this site has helped a lot. I aspire to have six to eight laying hens, and am building them a fully enclosed coop with a run so when I am gone for long days or the weekend they will have plenty of room inside, and then when I am home I can let them roam in the yard. So far, so good, but no hens yet :)

    Thanks yall,
    Sarah

    Howdy from Kansas, Sarah, and [​IMG]! Super to have you aboard! Predator proofing is important, particularly if you mus be gone on occasion. Hope you find all the info you need. Have fun with your birds.

    very nice coop but, where's the sauna and cable. Chickens can be very demanding.
