So here's my sob story: When we moved in last September, it seemed great. There was a coop already, and the landlady said we could have chickens without a pet deposit. Sure, the house was, um, rustic... but it was a country home and we hoped we could stay here till we saved up for a real home of our own! But now, the landlady has lost the house, and we have 60 days to move out. So my situation is unstable and the future unknown. With luck we'll find another country site where our chickens will be welcome. But I can't be sure that even if we are so fortunate, that we will find one with a proper usable coop (just in time for winter, too!) and a pen to keep the birds in till they adjust to the new location. So here is my plea- if anyone has tips or plans for a coop suitable for a small flock (less than 30) that they would be willing and able to share, you have my gratitude. We have 4 able bodied adults (one who has been trained in construction by the navy) and just about any kind of saw we could need, so the building won't be too bad.If it helps, our climate has hot, dry summers, wet and pronounced but mild winters, and seldom more than 7 inches of snow (that was a weird winter.. and it even lasted for a few days!) Also, if anyone in the state of Jefferson (that is, southern Oregon or northern California) has any materials they could donate I would promise to pay it forward. I believe in what goes around comes around, and When times are good I like to help folks out; but money will be tight during the move. There go our savings, just getting into a new house. We could come pick up supplies if you have any to spare so long as it is close enough to not cost us more in gas than the supplies are worth new.
