We are getting 15 1 day old chicks (Black sex links) in March through my son's 4-H club. We have talked about getting chickens for probably 7 or 8 years just never have and this seems like a good opportunity to do it. I am still not sure of what set up we are going to use for a coop. 1. We have a playhouse and a truck cab that we could convert and put in the middle of the run (raised of course). Our run for now is going to be our 10X10 dog kennel. We could make these movable so we could move them around the yard. 2. OR we could convert one end of our 24x12 shed. The end would give us a coop about 8x12. Feed, etc could be kept in the shed. We would attach the kennel to the shed possibly being able to make a bigger run because the side of the shed could be one side of the run. The biggest problem is it wouldn't be movable. Decisions, decisions Love all the info on this site. Been reading for a couple of weeks and just now joining.
