    I love the design of your hen house! How did you provide venting without drafts? I see one vent above the ceiling of the roost/droppings pit area.

    How many chickens were housed comfortably in the finished design? I am JUST starting (getting chicks this spring) and trying to find a coop design for our area. We are thinking of getting about 10 hens --some bantys, but mostly full sized.

    Any advice?

    it should have the name on the web page, them you can send them a private message-with tht PM link- if you'd like. They are probably more apt to see it.

    Good luck.

    My husband has said how about 10 hens, so your point about the quantity of eggs is well-taken. My daughter wants to sell some, too--we already have people lined up for fresh eggs!

    I'm now considering: 1 Ameraucanas, 2 Orps, 2 Barred Rocks, 1 white rock ,2 Welsummers, 2 Speckled Sussex

    What do you think?? Is it ok to just have a one of one breed?

    It's so hard...I still want a Wyandotte and a Buckeye!!!
