Hello I'm from northeast Indiana and very interested in getting started in the chicken raising hobby, Wanting chickens for eggs, will not be purchasing any chickens until late spring of 2015, Right now we have an old tool shed, that at one time was an old chicken coop, and we (husband and I) are in the process of turning it back into a chicken coop. I'm not sure what type of chickens I will get, I'll be researching all winter before I decide. I have a lot of questions about the inside of the chicken coop ,design wise. I have seen and read through posts on here on that subject. But wondering how high do the roosts and nesting cubbies have to be or does it matter ? And the coop has a wood floor, I have read people will put down linoleum, is that what we should do too? As of right now I plan to follow the deep litter method but only through winter months, during warmer weather just ???? have no idea what you put inside of coop if you don't use deep litter method. There seems to be so much to learn and everyone does something different and has a different opinion on what should and should not be done . I have one horse and two boar goats and they seem easy compared to what I need to learn for chickens. I'm sure by spring of 2015 Ill have it figured out and get me some chickens. Thank goodness for this forum!
