    How exciting! I hope you have a great hatch!

    I'm wondering what part of the country you live in. Coops can vary a little, depending on the climate you live in. How's the weather where you're at?

    How are your winters? Does it get really cold there?

    Do you have a brooder, yet?

    If you look at the they have a section where everyone has posted pictures of there coops. You could get ideas from that. I used a old playhouse that was never finished.
