Just joined and wanted to introduce myself (Will) and family. We're new to chicken raising, in fact, so new we don't have any chickens or a coop. My wife (Doris) was raised on a farm in Iowa and my youngest son Brock (9) loves eggs so it's time for chickens. My job is to build the coop while Doris and Brock raise the chickens. We have another son, Clay, who's 13 so his only job will be to eat. We've decided to go with the tractor style coop for up to ten hens since we have plenty of room. We may also try limited freerange, despite a weekly visit by a red-tailed hawk. (I read somewhere there's supposed to be a breed more suited to threats of birds of prey.) I've been avidly reading the plethora of posts and seeing all of the varieties of coops. Wow! All of you are amazing in both your creativity and dedication. Great reading, and I've already learn alot. Just one quick question as an opener - Should feeders be inside the coop or outside in the run for chicken tractors? I look forward to learning much more, thanks for your help and patience.
