    I am looking for advice on winter care in alaska for chickens and for a coop builder in the Chugiak area. I would like to find someone in my area that builds custom coops with a covered attached run. Our current coop is very small and the run is uncovered and muddy even after adding gravel and straw. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am attached to this girls already and want to take good care of them.

    Hi there from Nanaimo, BC [​IMG]

    We have very wet weather down here with all the rain, we'll be building for our girls (and guy) a covered section of the run and leaving the other half open. Were not so familiar with the type of winters, / weather you have up there though so hopefully that alaska thread will help!

    good luck in your chicken adventures, have fun!
