    It is going to be awesome. Are you building this as a money making proposition or are you just feeding your habit (like most of us do)?

    And all I can think is "It is NOT going to be big enough!! [​IMG]

    I was trying to calculate exactly how big a building I need for my birds and realized I need a full-sized BARN. Thank God I have downsized to bantams, otherwise I'd need 2! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well, when you think about breeding pens, and batchlor pens, and winter pens, and quarentine, and..... and.... and...

    Chickens should come with a warning label that reads, "More addictive and more expensive than Crack."

    Just feeding my habit.Became a stay at home mom about a year ago.I was bored,and needed a hobby. Thought I would raise a few chickens for eggs,and now i have chickens,ducks,geese,guineas,peafowl,quail and alot of turkeys.I even sold my motorcycle and have put the money towards building this coop.Crazy i know.Figured I would have a better chance at getting the husband to build it for me if i had the money to pay for it.

    WOW! HUGE! I am so so so so jealous! I also didn't know how addictive this was. When I first looked into getting chickens, I went on a hatchery site and almost gave up because I didn't want 25. Now, 25 are on their way and I am already scheming a way to get 25 more! DH is going to kill me before this is over lol.

    WOW...very nice start! And I thought my 8x10 was big [​IMG]

    When my wife first suggested that we raise chickens I didn't realize then how much fun and addicting it would be...looks like you are hooked too!

    [​IMG] Waiting for more picts!

    Wow that is gonna be huge. We have an 8x12 coop. Then we just built or Serama coop and next spring we will build a bantam coop. Going that big you should be set for some time into the future. Your very lucky.
