    Hello. A new winter project that is almost complete. A very automated coop, located inside a barn and near Lake Michigan. New to the hobby but have picked up a lot of valuable info on the Internet. Nipple waterers, PVC feeder, automatic pop door, external nest access, remote temperature monitor, remote wifi camera. (Want to check on the coop 24/7 from iPad when away farm) Will have on-call help from grandchildren when away. Presently searching the area for 15-20 week old Buff Orpingtons.
    Will build run when the snow and ice is gone. Hope to find lots of help and contribute when I can. Not sure how to post new thread on Indiana BYC Forum.
    Thanks, ChickensPlus
