I'm so new I don't even have any chickens yet!! But I'm almost ready.

I found this website last week and already have learned a ton of stuff. Just purchased 7 acres with house and 3 stall horse barn. We have 5 horses but they prefer to free roam so I am putting the stalls to good use. One will be my chicken coop. I built a chicken nesting box, roost, feeder and waterer all for only $12!!! The $12 was for the chicken nipples...all the rest was free!

I will try to post some pictures in the appropriate area of this site!
Greetings from Kansas, mrjoecrow, and
! Happy you joined our community! Sounds like you are good to go with your new set up. Best of luck and feel free to ask BYC any questions along the way!!
Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan

You may find that chickens are very dusty to keep in a barn with horses - if you keep your horses in at all you might want to consider a separate coop.
