We are fairly new to chicken & ducks, but our son brought a baby chick home with him this past spring from school and that one little chick started it all! I took my 2 boys to the local farm store and we got 3 more chickens and 2 ducks. My husband began building their coop from plans he had found here on the BYC site! We took one design from a member and then changed it just a bit to fit our budget. (BTW: I'm gonna have to find that member and thank him personally for a great coop design!) Our coop was finished mid-June and so far have yet to lose any of our "babies". Yes, they are spoiled & of course they all have names!!! Just thought I would post some pics for everyone to see! But can't seem to figure out how to posts pics here???
