Oh, almost forgot - few questions while I'm here (some I'm wondering myself, others I'm sure I'll need to answer for my mom)
When do RIR, Red Star, and Australorp Hens start laying? A range would be nice.
How long do chicks need to be indoors under a brooder lamp (at what age can they move to the coop)? I'd get them early August, if that changes anything.
What are some things to keep in mind when selling/using eggs from your yard (when they go bad, if you can keep them out at all like you do with fertile eggs, etc)?
And last, is grit necessary or is that only for chickens locked in a coop always (so they can't find their own rocks outside)?
Actually, I've decided (I unfortunately don't know how to delete a thread).
So what have you decided?
Two Coop 1's in the nook by the house in the sideyard.
Cool....are you building one from scratch or did you buy one?
Oops.... I took a look at the plans for your coop #1
That looks nice!
You are going to put 2 together? is that what you mean?
Here is a play house someone made using just pallets and found free wood and stuff.
But with instructions on how to make it step by step. you could modify it or it might be the right size already.
Check it out.
Yes, and I've seen that before - thanks though!
