    Good luck! That is so exciting! Do you already have chickens? Or do you have chicks on order?

    I have 8 hens and a rooster currently and have 5 buff orps, 5 partidge rocks, and 5 black australorps on order. The old coop was rotting out and a mink killed 10 of or flock. This new coop will be mink proof (let's hope)!

    You've got on-site inspectors to make sure the build goes well!
