So about 9 months ago I decided I would stop supporting "the egg industry" and start raising my own chickens...one problem...I lived in a small appartment! hahahaha...so I finally have a house; we closed on it mid April. We had to do many things in the house before "coop time" so finally today I got to start in the back yard...and I cleared my future coop spot. It will be an open coop and run "combo" 5' wide x 10 ' long x 5'5" tall (give and take...with room to grow) (coop will be 5'wx4Lx4t). Here are some pics of the backyard and the coop location...I will be loading more of the coop as I go....I am not a carpenter...so it will take me a while!! hahahaha the backyard from the left The rest of the backyard...not huge, but better than an appartment!!! The spot for the coop before...Darth, my black lab, cheking out the Spot The coop spot after...nice shade the wood fence is on the north and the coop area will be on the west Clearing the dead tree! lol Thanks for looking. More to come!!!!!!!
