So, I have been working on my coop, my chicks will be here the week of May 15th! I am going to keep them in a brooder inside my house for a while so I can finish their coop. It's been a little slow working on it because of the rain around here this past month. It is 8 x 5 and it will be 6ft tall in the front (from the floor up) and 5 ft in the back. The floor was made with 2 large pallets connected with a plywood floor and then I put down some vinyl flooring over that. Then I've been working on framing the walls, I have never done anything like this, so the framing is not correct but hopefully it will do! lol I will be working on putting the exterior plywood siding up this week (if the weather permits). Then for the roof, I am hoping to use some smoke colored polycarbonate so the inside won't be to terribly dark inside. There is a human door on the front and a window beside the door and there is a window on the back side as well. The eaves on the sides will be open for ventilation (covered with hardware cloth) as well as the windows. I am so excited! I have been reading and learning as much as I can for the past 2 or more years and I am finally getting CHICKENS!!!!
