    My first coop! I only have 3 chickens but I've become addicted, should have gotten a bigger coop!

    I'm a naive new chicken owner, ended up with 2 roos!!

    Quote:Oh, why not do what I've done: get more coops! I built an A-Frame, then a 4x8 rectangular coop, then a small Duck House, then I converted a Little Tikes Playhouse into a small coop, and then I bought one from a coop builder.

    And I only got into Chicken Keeping back in October 2009!

    Thanks for all the compliments [​IMG] It seems that every first time chicken owner becomes addicted!! Who woulda thought?

    I think I will look into another small coop, may have to with 2 roos!! Anyone have any luck with keeping 2 together?

    Actually, if the roos are raised together from chickies, they usually get along pretty well from what I understand, although with only one hen there may be problems, and she will be "worked to death" if you know what I mean. . . . [​IMG] I would definitely get another coop and get each roo a few more hens.
