I have taken over my familys farm and want to convert two horse/goat stalls in the barn to chicken coops. I need requirements for healthy happy birds and i plan on harvesting wild foraged eggs to local chefs as i am a chef by trade. I will be using dropping for compost to feed my large vegetable garden. This farm is in southern Tennessee is this helps about temp and soil. I have looked at tons of coop pics and will begin the conversion mid feb. I plan on fencing in a large run on the outside of barn connected to the two stalls that is 8ft high framed with wood and chicken wire with an open top. Any advice and pics ect will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help you all! joshp "Future farmer with big dreams, a strong back, and little experience"
