    After much deciding I have ordered my chicken coop here it is


    I chose this one over the smiths sectional one I was going to build for two reasons 1 it has more run area 54ft square over 33ft square. Two its not going to be moved so moving handles would just get in the way. Three the one I ordered is 6ft tall so I can walk in it comfortably the other one was 5ft and that is 4 inches shorter than I am. It should arrive in 3 weeks so I am getting the garden finished for it and then in May I booked of the week with my wednesday, thursday night shift so I can go to the fur and feather market in Melton Mowbray and buy some chickens then spend the week with them before having to go back to work.

    Oh just in case you are interested the coop i am having has the option for external nesting boxes which is what i have gone for.

    Really like your choice, you are doing everything SO organized (by contrast I bought some 2 month old pullets and built there coop out of a tile crater while they scratched around in the yard). You are REALLY going to enjoy your flock. What breeds are you choosing?

    It's lovely! It certainly sounds like you have everything planned well.
