I have bitten by the Chicken Bug, my friends think I am nuts. I have been researching for over a month now and have found a chicken coop that I think will meet my needs. It is called the Model HSS09 http://www.wholesalechickencoops.com/hss09 chicken coop.html I like that fact that I can stand up in the run to clean it. Does anyone have any experience with this coop? I talked with the supplier he said 4 -5 chickens do well in this coop. I plan on getting Silkies, do more Bantams fit in a coop or does that also mean 4 -5 Silkies. I know I have to be careful with crowding. Also, though I am urban, we have more that our fair share of racoons. I also had a hawk kill a neighbor's chicken on my garage roof one year. I work full time and the chickens will be in the coop/run during the day's Monday thru Friday for protection from preditors. Are the special issues and concerns because of that?
