    Got our first six barred rocks from the local feed store. Oh, and one extra. One of them turned out to be a male! We found a nice coop though (image attached). Made to order by some Amish folks. Very sturdy. 35296508_10155343917596384_351943385604423680_o.jpg

    Welcome to BYC. That is a nice coop. Be sure to put coon proof latches on the nest box area.

    Welcome! New myself too, and the coop looks really nice. Are you planning on letting them free range?

    For the moment, they free range when we're home and the sun's out. They're 3 months old. Plan is to have a dedicated run very soon.
