    Hi, for the last couple of years Ive been kicking the idea of getting chickens. My brother had a couple last year and they were awesome. So I decided I am ready for a few. I live in a urban area but i have a decent yard for a couple hens. I will be building my own couple and actually just bought most of the material needed. Now all I need is a good design for me and my yard. I will only be keeping around four or five bantams so that shouldn't be to overwhelming for a first timer. I am actually looking for and couple specific breeds that i want but I cant seem to find anyone close with these birds. Maybe I will find them on this site. Well its great to join your forum and I hope I can be as much help to you as you will be to me. Thanks

    If you're still looking for designs there's a book that has some awesome insights.

    http://www.coopedup.net/buy/ Building Chicken Coops for Dumbies! Plus there's plenty of pics around to give you some more creative ideas too.

    Have fun! And remember; always leave room for one or two more than you THINK you want... [​IMG]
