    Hello all,

    My name is Rudolf, I am currently building a coop for our chickens to be. We have ordered a few chicks that should arrive later this week. Everything is set up for our little ones but the coop for when our ladies are ready to go out is still in its infancy.

    Looking forward to the build and even more so to having or own chickens.

    Rudolf

    Hi Rudolf,

    What breed of chicks are you getting? Hope your coop build goes well.

    Thanks for joining us!

    My wife actually ordered different breeds. I think we are getting the following:

    Barnevelder
    Araucana
    White leghorn
    Buff orpington
    Rode island red
    Barred rock

    The coop build is going okay so far. I have done some woodwork in the past and with the plan I use it should be no problem.
