    Hi and Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    The Learning Center is where I first started reading/researching when I decided to get back into chickens, after a 20 year break. There's tons of great information there.

    The Coop Designs pages are great too, if you don't have it built yet.

    If you can ask more specific questions, it'll be easier to give you better advice.

    Enjoy!

    It's so pretty and green where you are! It reminds me of pictures of my friend's place up in Tennessee.

    How do your chickens like their coop? Do your run walls go underground at all and is there a door on the back of your coop so you can get in there? Did you make your own plan?
