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.
