    Hi my name is James and I have chickens! .... Not yet a career change but something to get me out of the house and away from the computer I'm a system admin by day, a website designer/3d artist at night.



    I use to raise chickens "leghorns" when I was young and I decided to give it another shot 28 years later. I went to my local TSC and bought 6 Red pullets ... so the sign said. I'm 35 and live in a rural"ish" area in Northwest Arkansas, I am looking for some ideas on coops at least big enough to hold up to 8.

    Welcome James, happy to have you here! [​IMG]

    For our latest coop we went with a clearance, build it yourself, yard barn from the home improvement store.
