we are using the coop that was in existence already when we moved here. We have 8 hens but I would like to maintain a continual flock with broody hens and roosters. I'll post pics of what I have now and would love ideas on what makes it easier to have brooders and chicks with mamas. We can build on to what we have. Outside the coop Laying boxes and some roost The brooder (but has chicks under a light just for this afternoon) A pano of the inside. There is a roost on the left also. The outside is fully engulfed in Himalayan blackberry during the summer.
