Hello Everyone! I am new here and excited to learn from all of you. I am building my first coop next week and hope to get it finished and my chicken yard built by April 1st. My friend is gifting me her 5 hens if I can get it done. I have to build a fenced in area for the chickens because I don't have fences all around my yard and live in a subdivision. I have over an acre but we have coyotes at night that roam around. I'd like to let them free range one day.I am making the red and white barn looking coop. Hopefully the image comes through with this post. You may need to scroll through to see my project.
