I'm new to the backyard chicken family and would love some input on location and coop design suggestions. I'm in Asheville, NC, and currently have 10 chicks a little over a week old. 2 golden comets, 2 aracaunas, 6 mixed pullets (not sure what they will be exactly). Have a rather wooded lot, however, up behind our house there is a somewhat level area (open to N, E and S, wooded to the West). Would prefer a walk-in coop and fenced in yard for them. I'm open to any and all suggestions as I've never raised chickens. Would like to do it the most cost-effective way possible.
