    No doubt!! right now i have not built a coop. i do have a fenced in area for them and i put them out every morning and put them up every evening. i have a big dog cage in my garage filled with straw and a box in there...with water.. I am going to start on a BIG coop as soon as i finish my final draft of my essay due this week for school..so i really need to finish that first. the fenced in area is big and has grass and dirt for them..along with sun and shade. i went and bought 2 little feeders for them along with chick food. we will be making the fenced in area bigger over the summer. in fact it is gonna be really big for them..but its under some trees and a couple of the trees are muberry trees is that bad for them?? oh man i never thought about that b4.
