    Hello, my 10 year old daughter and I are learning to be self sufficient. We have been gardening and we did raise and butcher a rooster from egg. So I think we are ready to build a coop and start learning how to handle a flock.

    Sounds like you and your daughter are a great team! If you haven't already, check out the coop forum for some good ideas:

    People make coops out of all sorts of materials or existing structures, use your imagination and have fun!
