    Awesome is right! Your chicks are going to love that... I love all that room.

    I really like that it's in your barn. What a great place for a chicken coop.

    Are you going to brood them in there from day 1?

    If so, you should really look in to some way of blocking the breeze/wind.

    Congrats on the chicks. How do you plan to keep the new babies draft free so they don't chill at night?

    That is what could be called a "fresh air" house. I use a similar plan and am convinced it is quite possibly the best way to keep chickens.

    Good for you and good timing.

    That is a fantastic coop AND you don't have to go moving them from one to the other [​IMG] I can't keep mine out yet being in WI where it still gets down close to 35 at night STILL! UGH! Anyway...wanted to ask you what type of flooring you have...would something be able to dig its way under and into the coop? Or is it wired?
