    Hey BYC folks,
    Plans drawn up for coop/run. Coop 7X7 and attached run 7X20. Cinder blocks for foundation being delivered tomorrow. The rest 75% recycled/recovered. Fully insulated and well ventilated. Expect to have 8 chicks early spring (gives me all winter to construct). Looking forward to all the expertise and advice from more seasoned members on BYC. Haven't had hens since I was knee high to a boll weevil. Should be a wonderful experience for me and my 4 children.

    Hi! [​IMG] Welcome! It sounds like you are off to a great start! chickens are such a wonderful hobby to share with children! Great idea to plan and build BEFORE the littles arrive! Some of us did that backwards. [​IMG]
    Be sure you check out the Learning Center if you haven't yet. So much information available there for coop design, choosing breeds etc. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    Best of luck to you!

    Frankhenchicken, I love your user name. Welcome to Backyard chickens, hope you enjoy it as much as we do. I want to apologize for certain greeters who must have too much caffeine in the morning to behave themselves. I am fully de-caffeinated so I'm fine.
